Painters' Self portraits as mememto mori

Albrecht Bouts, 1451-55
Various painters made self portraits with skeletons or skulls on their sides. All of them depicted their personal perception and attitude towards Death. Others seem to feel terrified, afraid or at least pensive, others seem to be brave and courageous, and some seem to be carefree and playful. Watch each painting and guess their attitudes.
