In the fifth plate of Rethel’s Dance of Death, Death stands with a flag on a barricade, biting the collar of his coat in a strange grin. The ranks of the insurgents, who fight with cobblestones and guns against an army which fires with cannons, are being decimated.
The title reads in the original German:
Der Tod auf der Barrikade.
This series of plates was engraved under the supervision of Hugo Bürkner.
