OriginalAnguish, c. 1878
Reason
Another painting that was a second round candidate for POTY 2018. From the National Gallery of Victoria website: In Anguish, Schenck has given the ewe clearly recognisable human characteristics, such as determination and sorrow, so that the viewer immediately identifies with its predicament and emotions. The sinister murder of crows also appear organised and patiently await a moment of weakness. Schenck is here metaphorically examining a broader human condition in the context of an animal painting.
