"Knight, Death and the Devil," Albrecht Durer, 1513

Knight, Death and the Devil, Albrecht Durer, 1513 by New Visions2010

From Durrenmatt's Suspicion:
   "Knight's a goner," said the man in the blue work clothes, pressing the words out of his obliquely twisted mouth: "Knight's a goner, knight's a goner!"
   Not until the worker had left the room and clumsily slammed the door behind him did the old man realize that he had been talking to a deaf mute.

Also by Durer: "Witch Riding Backwards on a Goat":
