In this complex Vanitas painting Fortuna, the Graeco-Roman Allegory of Fortune, warns humanity for a difficult future ahead: a choice between peace and prosperity at left or war and destruction at right.

Joseph Heintz the Younger lost his father, also a well-known painter, at a young age. Our painter led during fifty years a successful career in Venice.
