The Black Death was the deadliest pandemic in human history. Also known as the Bubonic Plague, it has been estimated to have killed up to 60% of Europe's population by 1400 ce. This disease was probably carried by fleas residing on the bodies of black rats, that were regular passengers on mideval merchant ships spreading throughout the Mediterranean and Europe. The Black Death has creating a series of religious, social and economic upheavals which had profound effects on the course of human history, while also having a profound impact on art that still resonates today.
On July 24, please observe The Black Plague Art Show with us at the Congregation Gallery.
The Black Plague will have many of the finest artists and sculptures we feel fit this genre. If you are interested in participating with us in The Black Plague Art Show, please see our submissions page.
