In 1995, at the age of 61, UK-based painter William Utermohlen was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. Encouraged by his nurse, Utermohlen never gave up his life-long passion and painted as much as he could until his memory failed him completely. The artist’s self-portraits grimly illustrates the merciless progression of the disease, which he had been exploring through visual self-reflection with paint and brushes during the last 5 years of his artistically active life.
