"Pesta på trappen" (Plague on the Stairs), an illustration by Theodor Kittelsen from around 1896. It depicts Pesta, the personification of the plague in Norwegian folklore, appearing as an old woman in a dark robe, peering ominously from a stairwell. This artwork captures the bleak and somber tone associated with the devastating impact of the plague. The dark tones and shadowy contrasts are hallmarks of Kittelsen's work, reflecting the fear and superstition surrounding the disease in the late 19th century.
