Last Word Series - Freud

15.00

This series is a collection of prints inspired by the last words of various artists, authors, scientists and pioneering human beings who have influenced us in some way or another. Their last words are sometimes premeditated, while others are captured before they meet their abrupt or unexpected end. 

Sigmund Freud is considered by many to be the father of modern day psychology. His techniques of free association, dream analysis, transference continue to be topics of fascination in psychology to this day. Freud died in September 1939 at the age of 83, after suffering from terminal mouth cancer. It is believed that he asked for a physician assisted suicide from his friend and fellow doctor, Max Schur. He told Max, "Now is nothing but torture and makes no sense." Upon receiving doses of morphine, he whispered "This is absurd, this is absurd" before falling into a coma and never waking up.
