Defiance (30 x 30 inches)
My grandfather lived to the age of 84. He spent most of his life on a farm in a village in Northern Transylvania. His life spanned Romania’s 20th century turbulent history, from the unravelling of the monarchy and the end of World War II, to the rise and fall of communism and the integration into the European Union. A bull of a man, he was strong, cheerful, and had an earthy vibe. His endurance defied the odds.
