What do I think? A little morbid, but than again, considering the time this was painted, it makes sense. No matter what time you live in, we all will deal with the reality that is death. We are all made equal by death and therefore need to focus on what T.S. Eliot called the permanent things - union with the divine through faith in Christ. Everything else is details.

What an interesting presentation. An eerie reminder of our temporal nature. Are you going to do any 17th century English poets? Or do you just do paintings?
