Abstract

This colourful woodcut by Weiditz portrays a peasant couple off to the dance, carefree and without any woes. The text reiterates this, contrast the full-bellied peasant with the rich man, whose life is dogged by anxiety and conflict. The Peasants’ War four years later would give a lie to this idealisation.
