Death Takes the Maiden - Watercolor & Pastel

* * *Buyers not living in the U.S., please contact me by email to buy & find out international shipping rates. Thanks! * * *

"Death & the Maiden" is a favorite theme of mine, and this is one of the initial pieces from a series I am creating on that theme The subject matter comes from a time in the early Renaissance period, when Europe was just beginning to recover from the effects of the Black Plague, and shows the vulnerability of even youth, purity and beauty in the face of it's great Horror. The nude Maiden of this subject in European images represents the human Soul succumbing to Death's embrace. Death is not always greeted with sadness, though, and this Maiden, for her own reasons, gives herself up to him gladly.
