Description of the artwork «Vanitas»

Vanitas (Latin vanitas, lit. "vanity, vanity") is a genre of Baroque painting, an allegorical still life whose compositional center is traditionally a human skull. Such paintings, an early stage in the development of still life, were intended as a reminder of the transience of life, the futility of pleasures and the inevitability of death. It was most widely used in Flanders and the Netherlands in the 16th and 17th centuries, with isolated examples of the genre found in France and Spain.
