Visitors to the intimate Watertown museum often ask whether it has paintings of Jack Kevorkian, known as Dr. Death, informs quoting The Boston Globe.

The Armenian Library and Museum of America has a rich collection of illuminated manuscripts and a catalog of portrait photographs of some of the 20th century's leading figures, but the grisly paintings by Dr. Death himself, assisted-suicide advocate Dr. Jack Kevorkian, continue to be in demand.

The museum is going to display its Kevorkian paintings, but it has not been fixed exactly when. At least one of them, “1915 Genocide 1945,” will be displayed next April, when the museum commemorates the Armenian Genocide. That painting, which links the killing of 1.5 million Armenians by the Ottoman Turkish Empire during and after World War I, and the 6 million Jews killed by Nazi Germany during World War II, was the most important piece for the museum to keep.
