The Sick Child, by Edvard Munch (1863–1944), is the name a series of paintings. It depicts a tragic event in Munch’s life - the death of his 15-year-old sister. Weak from the tuberculosis causing her slow and painful death, you can see his young sister’s suffering as she sits on her deathbed. He made copies of this moment, which truly shows how this tragedy was deeply rooted into Munch’s mind.

When Britain’s railway system expanded through St. Pancras Church’s graveyard in the 1860s, Thomas Hardy had to exhume hundreds of bodies and bury them in another cemetery. He decided to place the old headstones around an ash tree in the churchyard, where they formed a haunting root system that’s lasted for centuries. Source
