Emblems of Mortality

Emblems of Mortality.
London, 1789.

In this English publication of 1789 the artist remained very true to Holbein in layout and style, but artistic differences are nevertheless obvious. The frontispiece to this volume appears below, featuring the image of a procession which was characteristic of murals of the Dance of Death.
