The Peasant
The peasant drives his plough through a field, oblivious to the fact that Death, the skeletal figure, is leading him to his end. This image acts as a reminder that Death is invisible, unpredictable, and often confronts its victims when they least expect it, in the middle of their day-to-day routines. The skill of the artist, Hans Holbein the Younger, is evident in the recreation of perspective and in the inclusion of such extensive detail in so small an image.
