Ernest Bloch Death Mask
Ernest Bloch Death Mask

The Center for Creative Photography and the San Francisco Conservatory of Music each have one of the several copies of Bloch’s death mask, a casting of his face made after his death by his daughter Lucienne and her husband. This once-common practice was usually undertaken to create a memento or portrait of the deceased but it is unusual for an immediate family member to make the death mask.
