Images of beautiful death, though bizarre to the contemporary eye, were once commonplace. Examined together, they constitute an alternative art history, a collection of artefacts illustrating humankind’s attempts – metaphysical, mythological, scientific and popular – to imagine, respond to, or find meaning in the mystery of death.

In this richly talk, writer and founder of Morbid Anatomy, Joanna Ebenstein will trace the history of death in art, with a special focus on the bubonic plague epidemic, during which many of today’s must enduring images of death rose to prominence.
