Die Eitelkeit der Welt

Die Eitelkeit der Welt

More about this artwork
This allegorical painting is an early Titian work, which was later subjected to several changes probably from the master himself: in the once empty mirror, coins, jewelry and an old woman with distaff were added; additionally, an extinguished candle was placed in the hand of the main figure. The transitoriness of all things earthly was thereby enhanced through these alterations.
