The dance of death: the death blow.
Rowlandson's "The English dance of death" was a cooperative venture. Apart from himself, who produced the drawings between 1814 and 1816, William Combe and Rudolph Ackermann were important participants in this production. William Combe wrote two volumes of verses which were intended to facilitate the understanding of the images. Nevertheless, the two lines of text that appear below the images are thought to have been composed by Rowlandson himself. Rudolph Ackermann, who had a print shop in the Strand, promoted and published the prints after Rowlandson's designs.
