When I was maybe in middle school, we took a trip to a special exhibit at the Dayton Art Institute.  I can’t remember what exhibit it was or even exactly when it was but there was a painting I’ve remembered all this time (just not the identifying information like artist’s name, title of the painting, etc.).  It was of a skull grinning at the viewer, sitting on a pile of old books.  Between two of the books a strip of parchment peeked out with the words “This is what becomes of all our happy days” in French (I think).  I can’t find it but it looked similar to this one.If anyone has any clues for me, do tell.
