As We Ride Into the New Year

AR Staff, American Renaissance, Dec. 31, 2022

This is Albrecht Dürer’s 1513 engraving, Knight, Death and the Devil.

The Metropolitan Museum in New York City describes the knight: “Riding steadfastly through a dark Nordic gorge, Dürer’s knight rides past Death on a Pale Horse, who holds out an hourglass as a reminder of life’s brevity, and is followed closely behind by a pig-snouted Devil. As the embodiment of moral virtue, the rider . . . is undistracted and true to his mission.”

Thus may we approach the new year and all those yet to come!
