The History of Art And The Curious Lives of Famous Painters
The Three Ages of Man and Death by Hans Baldung
Death looks out at the viewer, challenging and composed. He holds the flabby arm of an old hag. The old crone, pulls the nubile young woman towards her fate. Death clutches an hourglass symbolizing the passing of time. This painting serves as a cautionary tale with moralizing overtones.
