Die Blätter mit dem Tod, 1918

Alfred Kubin :: Die Blätter mit dem Tod; [cover title]: Ein Totentanz. Berlin: Bruno Cassirer, 1918. First Edition. Kubin’s sequence of 24 lithographic images depicts death in a variety of contexts and including the title page and final vignette, in which which a gravestone bears the the artist’s own name; the cover is an additional lithograph. Kubin was well known for his explorations of macabre and satirical subject matter. This interpretation of the “Dance of Death” appeared at a moment when four years of world war and a spreading influenza pandemic meant that virtually no-one was untouched by death. | src locus solus rare books
