Hollar: The Dance of Death, 1790

Hollar 1658 Hollar 1816

When Hollar's 30 dance of death etching were re-published between 1790 and 1816, the above image was added showing Death leading away people from all stations in life. The image is a close copy of this image from 1658 by Hollar, but there are numerous big and small differences, like the large heraldic shield is missing, and the weeds in front and shrubbery in the background have been removed. There's a larger version here: Hollar 1790.
