In his 1915 essay for Defregger’s 80th birthday, Egger outlined what he demanded of a historical painting. This was in contrast to Defregger‘s “Letzes Aufgebot”, and emphasises what his “Totentanz“ was essentially about:
...The spirit of history demands a different temperament. When art becomes myth, all civility and depiction fail; indeed, they prevent the development of pure form, which alone must dominate.
Such a picture must at first sight reveal the equality of object and painter only through the distribution of space, the lines, and the use of colour. The journey into the “pure human”, detached from the milieu, is the only way for pure form [...] The most radical contrast to the art of the “Aufgebot” is my “Totentanz”, in which a single chord penetrates and dominates, so that at a single glance the full effect of the image is obvious through the unity of form, whereas in the “Aufgebot”, as in a narrative, one must first leaf through to take in everything [...] The tragic always goes beyond the great and demands the highest degree of simplicity, the renunciation of every addition, every luxury (or even theatrical means, as in the picture „Andreas Hofer‘s Last Walk” [painting by Franz v. Defregger from 1878]. A more concise form, which has become a style, deepens the tragedy and brings spirituality, taking away its material, episodic nature and making it symbolic.

On 21 March 1908, the exhibition celebrating the 60th anniversary of the reign of Emperor Franz Joseph I. opened in the Vienna Künstlerhaus. The just finished casein version (first casein replica (Kirschl M226) of the destroyed first version in oil M223)
„Der Totentanz von Anno Neun“ was exhibited.

From Egger-Lienz, report on the impression made by his Totentanz.
I chose the theme of “Totentanz Anno Neun”. The government personalities in Vienna probably envisioned the Tyroleans marching out against the enemy; they spoke and dreamed of „flying flags“ and „joyfully“ going to war, cheering the monarch with good peasants for whom no sacrifice is too great for their dearly beloved imperial house, for whom death is not a horror but the most welcome opportunity to sacrifice themselves as loyal subjects. The first time one of the government personalities saw the painting in progress, I began to have a bad feeling, they shrugged their shoulders and decided that the picture contained social-democratic tendencies, that the horrors of war were depicted instead of a joyful, jubilant people marching into the „battle“. ...
