After Hans HOLBEIN the Younger

Noblemen fighting with Death.

Second half 17th c

Drawing, pencil, 11,3 x 18 cm, laid paper (trimmed at edges).

Stuck under passe-partout.

Two drawings on one sheet with men fighting the allegorical figure of Death. While the first fighting couple is modelled after Holbein's original woodcut "The nobleman and Death" from his Danse Macabre series (1526), the second is copied after Wenzel Hollar's (1607-1677) reinterpretation of the print series, as published in 1646.
