The Old Man

"The Old Man" is part of the Dance Of Death woodcuts (1523–26) by Hans Holbein the Younger.

The Dance of Death refashions the late-medieval allegory of the Danse Macabre in a Renaissance Reformist satire.

Holbein's woodcuts show the figure of Death in many disguises confronting individuals from all walks of life. No one escapes Death's skeleton clutches; not the innocent, the righteous, the rich, or the pious.
