"Death and the Maiden" is a painting by the German Renaissance artist Hans Baldung, also known as Hans Baldung Grien. It was created in the early 16th century. The painting depicts a young woman being embraced by a skeletal figure of Death, who has draped his cloak over her. The maiden appears to be in a state of fear or resignation, as Death holds her in a tight embrace. The painting is widely interpreted as a representation of the inevitability of death and the transience of life. The composition is thought to be symbolic of the fleeting nature of youth and beauty, and serves as a reminder of the constant presence of death. "Death and the Maiden" is considered to be one of Baldung's most powerful and iconic works, and is a masterpiece of Northern Renaissance art.
