Subject 2: The Devil in Art HistoryPosted: December 1, 2014
Here are some famous examples of depictions of the Devil within art history:
Raphael – St. George Fighting the Dragon
Sassetta – St. Anthony the Hermit Tortured by the Devils
Matthias Grunewald – The Temptation of St. Anthony
Lucus Cranach The Elder – Adam and Eve
Guillaume Geefs – Le genie du mal
The running theme within these works is that Lucifer is generally depicted fairly classically as the Devil or the fallen angel Lucifer.
