"Death and the Old Woman" is a painting by Danish artist Laurits Andersen Ring, created in the late 19th century. The painting depicts a scene of death and decay, with a skeletal figure of Death standing over an old woman as she lays in bed.

In the painting, Ring has created a powerful and haunting image, with the stark contrast between the bony figure of Death and the frail, withered body of the old woman. The use of light and shadow is also striking, with the deep, ominous shadows around Death and the stark, bright light on the old woman's face.

The painting is notable for its melancholic and expressive content, as it reflects the growing interest in death and the macabre that was popular during the 19th and early 20th centuries. Through his depiction of Death and the old woman, Ring sought to evoke a sense of the inevitability and universality of death, and to encourage viewers to reflect on their own mortality.
