The Dance of Death, allegorical artwork

The Dance of Death (1493). This artwork, by the German painter Michael Wolgemut (1434-1519), was published in the 'Liber chronicarum' (Book of Chronicles, Nuremburg, 1493) by the German physician Hartmann Schedel (1440-1514). Depicting skeletons dancing by a grave, the concept is that of the Danse Macabre, a medieval allegory reminding people that death comes to everyone, no matter what status they attain in life. This copy of the artwork is from the German book 'Die Karikatur und Satire in der Medizin' (Caricature and Satire in Medicine, 1921) by the German art historian and physician Eugen Hollander (1867-1932)
