    In the first video Prof. Oliver Botar makes a compelling case to explain how FitzGerald’s work is relevant to the way we see our immediate world due to Covid-19. The second video explores a little-known aspect of the artist’s private life that had significant consequences for his art. Thanks for bringing both of these aspects to light!
