HOLBEIN'S DANCE OF DEATH

Professor Francke Will Discuss This and Duerer's Biblical Illustrations.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

An interesting illustrated lecture will be given by Professor Kuno Francke in the Peabody Room of Phillips Brooks House this evening at 8 o'clock on "Duerer's Biblical Illustrations and Holbein's 'Dance of Death'". Professor Francke will take up the various pictures and discuss the meaning and ideas involved in each. These works of Duerer express in a wonderfully graphic manner the intellectual and religious feelings which were attacked at the time of the Reformation. Holbein's "Dance of Death" is an artistic and literary masterpiece of the same period. Professor Francke has made a special study of this period and is recognized as an authority on it. The lecture is under the auspices of the Harvard-Andover Divinity Club and is open to all members of the University.
