Best Wishes on a New Life

10.5" x 14" pen and ink (1952) This piece shows patients on the balcony of their ward, giving a send-off to departing patients by banging whatever was available on the balcony railing.

(NOTE: this drawing and the following four works are all pieces that depict daily life in a TB sanatorium. Taira was hospitalized for 18 months from 1950-1952.)

Based on this original
