Abstract

Composed in 1673 as the result of the collaboration between the Franciscan David de la Vigne and the Dutch etcher Romeyn de Hooghe, the cycle of illustrations of the Miroir de la bonne mort was actually first drafted in an unillustrated booklet by Father David which appeared in Paris in 1646. The iconography itself was originally conceived in Spain, and a series of drawings survived. It is perfectly possible that De Hooghe elaborated his cycle of etchings on the basis of these models. Some two years later the cycle appeared in a twin edition in the Southern Netherlands.
