Shroud to the World
by John McClellan
The frozen body of a lone female figure lies face up in the snow. A small child in his winter coat stands staring, sad-eyed at the lonely corpse.
A shroud is a cloth used to wrap a body for burial. It can also mean something that is used to conceal, protect, or hide. The year is 1938.
What do you think the artist is implying by choosing to name this lithograph Shroud to the World?
