Memento mori (1916) by Julie de Graag (1877-1924). The image is distributed under public domain license.

Julie de Graag (1877-1924) is a female Dutch graphic artist and painter, whose life was ridden by personal tragedies and culminated in suicide. In 1904, she moved to Laren, the Netherlands, where she began to use a more stylized style under the influence of the sculptor Joseph Mendes da Costa and the painter Bart van der Leck . Her home burned down completely on New Year’s night 1908, with much of her work being lost. In addition to her work as an artist, she gave drawing lessons a few hours a week at a girls’ school in Utrecht. Her health condition was constantly fragile and she therefore often stayed with her parents in Hague. In the early 1920s, she declined both physically and mentally and had to stop teaching. This was reflected in the theme of her work, which became increasingly morbid. Julie de Graag committed suicide at the age of 46.

I hope that you will appreciate her work. Enjoy this chart!
