The Sailor (The Shipwreck). The Knight.

Icones mortis.
Basel, 1554.

The title of this 1554 publication of Holbein’s work is in Latin rather than French, Icones mortis (“Images of Death”). As is common, the Latin text above the images remains constant from publication to publication, but the epigrams change. Here they are in Latin rather than in the French of original 1538 publication.
