The Temptations of Saint Anthony Abbot

1543 - 1550. Oil on panel Not on display

Saint Anthony is tempted by the Devil, transformed into a beautiful naked woman accompanied by a witch. The burning city in the background, the monsters and other elements are derived from Bosch (c. 1450-1516). However, the figures of Saint Anthony, the witch and particularly the female nude reveal Van Aelst’s assimilation of the new Italian Renaissance idiom.
