Art Hx: Visual and Medical Legacies of British Colonialism

A print of the interior of a home. A Black woman, wearing a read headscarf and a green dress, sits against the rightmost wall of the room beside a Black man, who is lying underneath blankets. A white man in a suit wearing a screen over his face stands in front of the open door at the back of the room. A case rests on the doorstep by the man in the suit. To the left of the print, in front of the fireplace and stove, is a table on which a body rests, covered entirely by a white cloth.
