No matter what part of the globe you live in, Death is a non-negotiable phenomenon that has been fascinating, scarring and inspiring human beings for hundreds of years, and the contents of Wellcome Collection's Death A Picture Album are surprisingly more enlightening than disturbing to look at.

Collecting works specifically chosen from death-obsessed print collector Richard Harris, Wellcome Collection's Death Picture Album features striking pieces of macabre artwork from many different locations.

Wellcome Collection divided its Death Picture Album into five major sections, which includes Contemplating Death, The Dance of Death, Violent Death, Eros & Thanatos and Commemoration in order to better explain what it calls "the epitome of terrible beauty...the end awaiting us all."
