A Skull, Hercules Segers, c. 1615 - c. 1630

A Skull, Hercules Segers, c. 1615 - c. 1630

etching, h 74mm × w 106mm. More details

The meticulousness with which the old, battered skull is depicted with a muddle of scratches suggests that Segers was here working ‘from life.’ The skull that served as the model is different to the one in the adjacent painting (Welch Family Private Collection, United States).
