Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse

Conquest, War, Judgment, & Death

After a woodcut by Albrecht Durer; Nuremberg 1496


The scene illustrates the passage in The Revelation of Saint John wherein Judgment Day is prophesied. The first rider, on the white steed of conquest, is farthest to the right. The second rides the red roan horse of war,the third the black horse of famine. The fourth, closest to the viewer, rides the pale horse of death. These four were given authority over one quarter of the earth to kill with bow, sword, famine, plague and the wild beasts of the earth.
