Hans Holbein's Dance of Death redefined its own genre. In Holbein's work, Death is still very aggressive; however, it does not dance with the deads anymore, but intervenes directly in scenes of everyday life.

Death is always always, and an hour-glass often present to indicate the transience of life .

Etching by David Deuchar (1743-1808) after Hans Holbein.

Good impression in a good clean condition with no folds, tears or stains.
With full plate border and margins on a sheet of woven paper from the period.
From the early edition of 1803.

The series where engraved by a number of artists over the years such as Hollar and Mechel. Deuchar inspired his work on the older examples. In most prints he is very near to the work of Hollar although he shows more scenes.

Painter, draughtsman and designer of woodcuts, glass-paintings, ... born Augsburg 1497/8- died London 1543. Son of Hans Holbein the Elder.
