All Is Vanity by Charles Allan Gilbert
Cross stitch chart or kit from the Scarlet Quince 1830 - 1900 Fine Art Collection.
Charles Allan Gilbert (September 3, 1873 – April 20, 1929), better known as C. Allan Gilbert, was a prominent American illustrator. He is especially remembered for a widely published drawing (a memento mori) titled All Is Vanity. That drawing, often described as an optical illusion, is a double image (or visual pun) in which the scene of a woman admiring herself in a mirror, when viewed from a distance, appears to be a human skull. It is less widely known that Gilbert was an early contributor to animation, and a camouflage artist (or camoufleur) for the U.S. Shipping Board during World War I.
