Scenes from the Life of Saint Antony Abbot

Ca. 1490. Oil on panel.
Room 051A

During his ascetic retreat to the desert, Saint Antony was subjected to numerous temptations by the devil. On one occasion, the devil disguised himself as a seductive woman in order to draw him into the sin of lust. On another, the Egyptian monk was violently tormented by a group of demonic creatures, represented here with different shapes and colours, as often requested by clients.
