Kaposi’s Sarcoma

Greeting card featuring a doctor treating an AIDS patient who is covered with Kaposi's Sarcoma lesions

Invitation in the form of a greeting card from The Galerie St. Etienne in honor of the opening of an exhibition by artist Sue Coe called, “We all fall down.” The cover of the card features art by Coe, a work of graphite, charcoal, and gouache called, “Kaposi’s Sarcoma.” The image features a dark room with one open window through which sunlight is coming through, highlighting the bare back of an AIDS patient covered with Kaposi’s Sarcoma lesions. The patient is looking toward the ground and is frail to the point that bones can be seen through his back. A doctor is standing behind the patient, examining his back and touching the lesions with bare hands.
