La Grand dance Macabre, Citizeness and Widow

Shepherdess and crutches Merchant's and bailiff's wife

The citizeness and widow from La Grand dance Macabre des Hommes et des Femmes. Printed by Nicolas Oudot in Troyes, 1641. This woodcut was used once more for the spinster maid and Franciscan nun - evidently to replace a missing woodblock. There's a larger version here: Citizeness and widow.
