Danse Macabre Books online.

vendredi 14 octobre 2011, par Guillaume Berthon

We are pleased to announce the first digital collection of Danse
Macabre books.

The graphic collection “Mensch und Tod” at the
Heinrich-Heine-University Düsseldorf (Germany) is one of the most
important collections specializing in prints on death, dying and the
Danse Macabre. Ranging from the 15th century to nowadays, the
collection allows a broad overview of the development of death imagery
in European art.
Generously supported by the Gesellschaft von Freunden und Förderern der
Heinrich-Heine-Universität, the copyright free books have now been
digitized. The project was carried out in cooperation with the
University- and regional library Duesseldorf.

Among the digital collection of c.90 books are central works by artists
such as Hans Holbein, Matthäus Merian, Michael Rentz, Johann Rudolf
Schellenberg, Thomas Rowlandson and Alfred Rethel.
