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.
