What is this?
On a ground of floral motifs in pink, lavender, and green, a blocked out area of ground in darker tones, six lines of text, five as though crossed with a black marker. The last line reads: 6. “I knew, as did everyone, that Bicêtre was both hospital and prison; but I did not know that the hospital had been built to nurture sickness, the prison to nurture crime.”
