The Dance of Death, by Hans Holbein

XVI.

The Nobleman

Der Edelmann.

Quis est homo qui viuet, & non videbit mortem, eruet animã suam de manu inferi? — Psal. lxxxviii.

THE NOBLEMAN.
Death drags the resisting Nobleman towards a bier in the background.

Qui est celluy, tant soit grande homme,

Qui puisse uiure sans mourir?

Et de la Mort, qui tout assomme,

Puisse son Ame recourir?
