The Temptation of St Anthony

This subject has been painted as well as etched by many interesting artists over the centuries. From the earlier etchings of Shongauer to Bosch's elaborate triptych and recently with Ernst and Dali's versions, The Temptation of St Anthony has given each artist the chance to express some of their strangest fantasies.
