The brevity of life and futility of wealth were popular themes in 17th-century painting. In vanitas paintings, objects such as skulls, bubbles, wilting flowers, burning candles, ripe fruit, jewels, and timepieces alert us to the presence of death, even in a life of material indulgence, while paintings of the 'Three Ages of Man' prompt us to reflect on the stages and lessons of life.
