A masterpiece of european baroque art.
This painting is by the dutch artist Adriaen van Utrecht. It shows the most present aspect of baroque: Vanitas. Vanitas means evanescence of life and all beauty. The skull forms a contrast to the flowers (life - death)
Another symbol for evanescence is the clock in the center.
