Death as an Enemy is inspired by a story of the first appearance of cholera in France written by the German poet Heinrich Heine. In the image, his dancing slippers appear from beneath Death’s monk’s robe as he dances to the fiddle music that he plays. In his wake lie the bodies of the costumed revelers, who were met unprepared for death.
