Description
1 print :
The print contrasts two kinds of grave marker: on the right, an ornate stone tomb sculpted with swags and cherubim, and on the left a plain wooden staff with an A-shaped top. The two kinds of grave markers may represent the two men shown in the print, of whom the one on the left wears peasant clothes while the one on the right, holding keys, wears a black suit of more bourgeois appearance: the latter may be the choirmaster referred to by Nagler, loc. cit.
