And the most popular and famous Dance of Death series is that of Hans Holbein the Younger - a set of 41 woodcuts depicting death interrupting the lives of men, women, and children from all walks and stations of life in order to /5(15).

The English dance of death, the French danse macabre, or the German Totentanz, pictorial or sculpural representations of death as a skeleton or a shrunken corpse, characterized by a grim humor, originated early in the fourteenth century.

The dance of death had its origins in late 13th- or early 14th-century poems that combined the essential ideas of the inevitability and the impartiality of death. The dance of death of the Cimetière des Innocents in Paris, painted inis considered the starting point of this tradition.
