Description:

Since the late fourteenth century, European artists created an extensive body of images, in paintings, prints, drawings, sculptures and other media, about the horror of disease and death, as well as hope and salvation. This interdisciplinary study on disease in metaphysical context is the first general overview of plague art written from an art historical standpoint.
