A voluptuary surprised by death. Oil painting by Frans Francken II by Frans Francken( Visual )

and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The present painting is the only known version of this elaborate composition. Death is showing the young man a letter written by the man to sell his life in exchange for riches. The point of the picture is not that he enjoys pleasure but that his pleasures (tennis, oysters, music) are those of wealth, gained by sacrificing his soul. Now Death has come to redeem the pledge. The curtained painting of the nude in the background is a Titian-type which also appears in Francken's paintings of picture-galleries

Death and the miser. Oil painting by Frans van Francken II by Frans Francken( Visual )

and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

A popular composition: the catalogue of Francken's paintings by U. Härting lists nine autograph versions, and there are many painted and engraved copies. The general sense is that of the Dance of Death: death comes even to those who have many blessings on earth. The precise role of the victim in this composition has been identified variously as a physician, a rich man, a moneylender, a gout-ridden man, a miser
