Death is the sombre theme of the Wellcome's latest exhibition, which showcases the private collection of Richard Harris, a Chicago-based antique collector who has amassed more than 300 artefacts, artworks and curiosities relating to death. The subject is explored through rare prints by Rembrandt, Dürer and Goya, antique metamorphic postcards and ancient Incan skulls among other ephemera.
