Carlos Schwabe, La Mort du Fossoyeur, 1893.
Death is an angel whose magnetic palms
Bring dreams of ecstasy and slumberous calms
To smooth the beds of naked men and poor. 
Charles Baudelaire, “Death of the Poor,” Les Fleurs du Mal, 1857.
Blessed were the dreamers whom death was merciful enough to claim before they could see the 20th Century.
