The Art of Dying – BBC4

September 2009

We were commissioned to cast a ‘death mask’ from TV presenter Dan Cruickshank.

“Dan meets art historian and nun Sister Wendy to quiz her on the helpfulness of art in the face of death; painter Maggi Hambling, who portrayed her own mother on her deathbed; and Jamie McCartney, who took a plaster cast of his dead father.”
