Jheronimus Bosch biography

This work is linked to Revelation 19:21

Detail of the right wing of the triptych. The monster in the chair is the Prince of Hell.

The woman under the chair is staring into a mirror. Bosch probably found her guilty of the deadly sin of vanity. The toad on her chest symbolizes death or lust.
