Caricatures of Death Personified
From a pre-Revolutionary magazine, first published in Russia in 1906. Illustrations by Boris Kustodiev.
Personifications of death included depictions of the devastating 1906 drought and ensuing famine, and the ravages of cholera, in the midst of revolutionary uprisings in Moscow.

”This shoots inspiration came from the kind of macabre, nightmarish illustrations that litter childhood fiction, offering up a vision which is part Grimm’s fairy tale part mature Parisian opulence. It combines symbolism that is both sweet and sinister.” - via.
