Antoon Derkzen van Angeren (1878-1961)

Two Skulls

Dutch, 1908-9


30 x 39.7 cm


This etching revives the distinctive Dutch seventeenth-century painting category of vanitas still-life.

One or more skulls in isolation was a tradition established by Angeren’s seventeenth-century predecessor, Hercules Seers (1589/90-1633/38).
