The New Married Lady (The Noblewoman). The Duchess.
Les Simulachres & historiees faces de la mort.
The 1538 Les Simulachres & historiees faces de la mort is the first publication of Holbein’s sequence of images of Death. Note that Holbein’s characters are not set against a generic backdrop but rather are placed within distinct settings, such as the Duchess in her bed. The brief Latin text above the images comes from Biblical passages. The epigrams below are in French.
