Title

Atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Part 6

Description

A mushroom cloud is prominent in the top of the painting with a smaller cloud lower down on a pillar of flame. Below that is a scene of mass devastation.

Inscriptions read “315” signed by the author; caption reads “(6)… Poi la testa del fungo si staccò, e salì vertiginosamente verso la stratosfera, ed al suo posto cominciò ad apparire, un secondo fungo più piccolo, come un mostro decapitato, al quale spuntasse una nuova testa. Risultato di questa orribile azione di guerra: 42.221 morti, 40.000 feriti, 743.00 senza tetto e…la resa del GIAPPONE.
