Italian Woman # 7 (illustrated by Max Rugers)

In Endless Nights, Sergei visits Venice, Italy and returns to one of the islands in the Venice lagoon.

As a child he had visited one of the islands and had a brief encounter with Death, who asked him to try to open a rusted gate, which he was unable to do. As an adult, he returned to the island and once again met Death. This time he was able to open the gates and let Death into Alain’s court.

His entire encounter with Death felt like a dream and when he awoke and arrived back into the city all of the people seemed paper thin and unreal. He wondered what happened behind their eyes and in their heads.

This woman is one of the Italian citizens that Sergei saw when returning to Venice.

She appears in Endless Nights, on page 22 in panel 6.

This is a great portrait from Max. I love how Max drew this woman. She is incredibly beautiful and I like how her hair hangs down over her shoulders. The pink and purple background really adds a high level of contrast to the Italian woman.
