Keith Haring photographed by Tseng Kwong Chi painting the mural at Necker Children’s Hospital in Paris, 1987.

The mural was done with hopes to brighten the days of the sick children. Necker Hospital is known for specializing in rare genetic diseases. The hospital has been under renovation for a couple of years but Haring’s work got saved.

Fun Fact: French physician Rene Theophile Hyacinthe Laënnec invented the stethoscope while working at the hospital in 1816.
