Dance Of Death
Beautifully macabre, Holbein's The Dance of Death is a historically significant sequence of minuscule woodcuts reflecting the folly of human greed and pride.
Tapping into the new literary culture of the early 16th century, each image in Holbein’s triumphant work exudes wit, horror, and drama, as a terrifying skeleton makes a mockery of everyone from the emperor to a ploughman. Ulinka Rublack introduces Holbein’s work with an astute essay on The Dance of Death and the world in which the artist lived.
A reproduction of a complete set from The British Museum, this edition highlights the significant details of the woodcuts and provides examples of similar works within the field.
