La Danse Macabre: Musicians

Authority Pope and emperor

From la Danse Macabre in Paris. In 1486 the book was expanded with this woodcut of four dead musicians. It is a curious fact that there is no music in the Danse Macabre itself; even the minstrel has dropped his lute. There's a larger version here: Musicians.
