This print presents the link between the emotional and physical realities of the AIDS patients that Avery treated as a psychiatrist. Blue Smallpox, a line-block print incorporating a nineteenth-century image of a pox sufferer, is also entitled The Print of Hope because that “incurable” scourge was finally defeated by medicine.
