Train wreck at Montparnasse (October 22, 1895) by Studio Lévy and Sons.

In 1546, possibly under Italian influence, Cranach composed the "Fons Juventutis" ("Fountain of Youth") of the Berlin Gallery, executed by his son, a picture in which hags are seen entering a Renaissance fountain, and are received as they issue from it with all the charms of youth by knights and pages. The painting is in the Gemäldegalerie, Berlin.
