Object description :

"Allegory Of Vanity, Holland 17th Century"
Vanity, oil on canvas, dimensions 61.5 cm x 45.5 cm, with its very beautiful carved gilded wood frame: 78 cm x 64 cm, Holland 17th century. Our painting is a resumption of the painting by Frans Floris "Nascendo Morimus" referring to a very specific art of the 16th century: vanity, which can be translated as "as we are born we must die". Let us not forget, the Child tells us, one foot on a skull and resting on an hourglass, indicating that the Resurrection, that of Christ that we see on the right of the painting, awaits those who lead a healthy and healthy life. in Christian morality.
