Vanitas and libraries
The skull is a strongly recurrent figure in my work and it does not always have a necrological significance. This is not the case of "Vanities and Libraries", where the gloomy Spanish Baroque opposite to XVI century mannerism impresses me: Zurbaran, Ribera, Velazquez, Valdés Leal ...

The connection between knowledge and death makes the latter abandon any inkling of sense. Vanity of vanities, -Vanites vanitatum-. My great astonishment at "The Ambassadors" by Holbein the Younger.
