Vanitas Still-Life

Oil on wood, 62 x 102 cm
Kunsthistorisches Museum, Vienna

A remarkable feature of this painting is the the still-life and a biblical scene (here Christ with Mary and Martha) composed together. The effect of the compostion was strongly disturbed by cutting the lower part of the painting (about 9 cm was cut for unknown reasons).
