The AIDS crisis deeply affected the art world in the 1980s, leading to a range of images of protest and grief. Donald Ruddy, a furniture designer then living with AIDS, published A Hundred LEGENDS, a boxed portfolio of photographs, poetry, prose, paintings, and other media to raise awareness of and funds for people with AIDS. Among the 127 contributors, artist Brian Buczak contributed Baby, a painting that depicts an infant contained within the ordered pattern of a crib.
