A newly mounted and framed set to preserve a quite remarkable set of late19th century lithographs. The set are quite extraordinary and dis[play wonderfully showing a wonderful subject and great history. The Dance Of Death is a Memento Mori collection meaning in latin “You must die”. The set are after the original works Danse Macabre which was from the 15th Century by Bernt Notke but unfortunately the originals were destroyed in 1943 when an allied attack bombed the German city of Lubeck. Very rare and highly collectable.
