Memento Mori Paintings: Walter Kuhlman

Walter Kuhlman (1918 – 2009) was an abstract expressionist painter based in San Francisco. The image of the human skull has appeared in several of Kuhlman's paintings. Here, a hunched skull-headed figure stares at a floating flower garland. Death yearning for life.
