[Painting of Death as a spectral nanny taking a child and infant away from their bereaved family.  A detail shows the family’s house number is 1918.]

I never realized this until seeing the detail, but this painting is most likely about the flu pandemic.

it’s really interesting seeing death portrayed as a woman 

Especially a a nurturer rather than a destroyer

Can’t stop looking, this is lovely.

Though it would have been nice if the OP’s comment with the title (“Danse Macabre”) and the artist (Rob Harrison) hadn’t been removed - I mean, even if you don’t care about attribution, why would you not want to know who created a beautiful thing?? (Looking at his Deviantart confirms that it’s about the flu pandemic, btw.)
