La Grand dance Macabre, Citizen and Widow

Shepherdess and crutches Merchant's and bailiff's wife

The citizen woman 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: Citizen and widow.
