Albert Besnard: Images of Death

French painter Albert Besnard has a series of figurative Death pieces, in which the ominous bony figure shows up boldly or furtively…blending into the crowd and shadows, startling those he encounters as an unexpected guest, or simply looking dapper.


While he is also known for his success in watercolor, pastel, oil and etching in portraiture, landscape and decoration, I particularly like this little collection I’ve assembled here.

  1. I love the two just before the last one. The swashbuckler and the one who appears to be saying “hey, guys!”
