This fragment showing
a representation of hell, made by the earlier 16th century artist, Hienonymus
Bosch, has been considered one of the most frightening imageries of the
devil ever produced in painting. Little is known about Bosch, but this
scene depicts many aspects frequently attributed to the art of psychotics:
dismembered bodies, half-human monsters and violent anatomic distortions.
Bosch died in 1516.
