The Consequences of Alcoholism, Hendrick Goltzius, 1590 - 1610

engraving, h 190mm × w 125mm More details

The young man drinks insatiably from no fewer than two glasses at the same time. Signs of the consequences of this thirsty habit lie on the ground. The ripped purse and the hourglass indicate that time and money are being wasted. The man in the nearby print personifies ruination, evident from the accompanying caption, which warns: ‘This is what comes from gluttony and excessive drinking.’
