The pictures of jesters below come from four different traditions. Picture one is The Betley Window,
created by an unknown artist for the marriage of Henry VIII, around 1509. It is one of the earliest
depictions of jesters and clowns.
The second picture is Harlequin seated in a cafe. It is a painting by Pablo Picasso, a modern approach to jesters.
The third picture is another work of Picasso, The head of Harlequin. Although the figure is stilized,
the entertaining quality of jesters still comes through.
The fourth picture is "Bohóc" (Jester). It is a work of a Hungarian painter, József Egry, from 1911.
