Young Man with a Skull

Young Man with a Skull is a painting by the Dutch Golden Age painter Frans Hals, completed in 1626 and now in the National Gallery, London. Once considered a depiction of Hamlet holding the skull of Yorick, the painting shows a young man in a feathered bonnet gesturing and holding a skull. It was first documented by Cornelis Hofstede de Groot in 1910, and identified as one of Hals' works owing to the painting's similarity to other works by the artist.
