Black Death's Dance of Death

paintings, artformDavid Blake

Art can take many forms; be it a pastel painting to expressive dance.  Major trauma's of events of the day can lead to intersections of art forms as they undergo major changes to deal with the events at hand.  The 'Dance of Death', otherwise known as 'Danse Macabre' is an artistic genre directly attributed to the ravages of The Black Death in Medieval Europe. 

Often represented by figures with a short dialog with death underwriting the painting; it depicts death being part of every day events much like an unwanted stranger stopping you in the road to talk with you, then whisk you away into the underworld.
