"Devil on Night Chair" by Bosch

Three dimensional sculpture of the "Devil on Night Chair", also known as "Prince of Hell", a figure that is prominently featured in "The Garden of Earthly Delights", painted by early Renaissance artist Hieronymus Bosch in 1503-1504.  One of three large triptychs painted by Bosch during his lifetime, and widely considered to be his masterpiece, "The Garden of Earthly Delights" follows the customary triptych tradition, meant to be viewed from left to right, with panels representing Eden, Earthly Temptations, and Hell.  The figure of the "Devil on Night Chair" is found on the right panel (see photo, below).  Considered to be a forerunner of surrealism and inspiring artists across the centuries, from Bruegel to Dali, Bosch continues to fascinate historians and art lovers alike.

Studio artists in Bosch's Netherlands birthplace, s'Hertogenbosch, hand-paint molded resin forms to produce incredibly detailed three dimensional renderings of the fantastical figures found in "The Garden of Earthly Delights". 

This particularly disturbing, bird-like creature is seated on a chamber pot, while devouring the corpses of the tormented.  The cauldron that sits on his head is considered by some scholars to represent a debased crown, which gave the name "Prince of Hell" to this figure.

Figures that have long been a source of fascination have been lifted from the painted surface and transformed into 3 dimensional objects for our close inspection.  Perfect for placement on a desk or shelf, this small sculpture will make an ideal gift for anyone interested in Renaissance Art, Modern Art or Medieval History.
