The Countess
Holbein Proofs, Countess

Countess or Bride

A necklace of bones D eath helps the maid dressing the countess with a necklace made of little bones (see detail to the right).

Variations: Various forms of the rosette on the long side of the table. Birckmann has placed a face in the rosette and has placed a picture frame and an oval box on the table. This is imitated by Hollar and Deuchar.
