Additional Information about the Print

Originating with Plato (Republic Book VI) the satirical allegory of the ship of fools was a popular theme in the late 15th/16th centuries. The frontispiece woodcut to Sebastian Brantís book of that title was the inspiration behind Hieronymus Bosch Ďs painting The Ship of Fools.
