Update of a painting that belongs to the series Brave New Middle Ages. In this series, I make comparisons between different aspects of contemporary life and life during the Middle Ages.
As in the Middle Ages, today's cities are real centers of new ideas, technologies and power. However, the risk of serious epidemics is increasing today, worrying the world's health authorities, due to the ease with which viruses and bacteria can be transmitted.
This has raised the same concerns as in the Middle Ages about plagues.
This is the theme of this picture: Health.
