Albin Egger-Lienz (1868-1926) anti-war paintings & one danse macabre

The nameless (1916)


Finale (1918) (Dead Soldiers)


Dead Soldier (1918)



Dance of Death (1908)
It's about the revolution of peasants in Tyrole in 1809:
they feel familiar with Death on their side,
as they march forward bravely.

This work was considered provocatine,
antipatriotic and too much communistic,

so they denied him a post in
Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna
