The Triumph of Death, or The 3 Fates.

Flemish tapestry (probably Brussels, ca. 1510-1520).

Victoria and Albert Museum, London.

The three fates, Clotho, Lachesis and Atropos, who spin, draw out and cut the thread of Life, represent Death in this tapestry, as they triumph over the fallen body of Chastity.

This is the third subject in Petrarch's poem The Triumphs.

First, Love triumphs; then Love is overcome by Chastity, Chastity by Death, Death by Fame, Fame by Time and Time by Eternity.

Thomas Wilmer Dewing
Very much like the Pre-Raphaelites, meaning that a beautiful woman is faced with virtue.
