Crayon lithograph, Kn 271 b
This sixth sheet of the series does not show the face of Death either. The observer only sees the back of a tall figure. What is visible, is the face of the dying man who joyfully greets Death as a friend and puts his hand around the figure’s head. The man’s eyes show that Death has come as a release. As in the figure in »Death on the Road«, sheet 5 of the series, the face of the dying man resembles that of a skull.
