The Children of the Holdomor

This painting, by Nina Marchenko, depicts an artist's interpretation of how the man-made famine in Ukraine between 1932-33—known as Holodomor—impacted one Ukrainian mother and her children.

The work is part of a Collection—"Holodomor; Through the Eyes of Ukrainian Artists," Founder Trustee Morgan Williams. It is online via Holodomor Research & Education Consortium.

The artist provides us with a description of her work:

This stylized painting depicts golden wheat ready to be harvested in the background, in the foreground a mother with swollen legs lies dead on her young daughters lap, the daughter hides her mothers face with her own emaciated hand. Along the side of the mother sits a naked toddler with a distended stomach who looks to be attempting to wake the mother.
