HIERONYMUS BOSCH 
- Devil on Night-chair (large) JB24

It is presumed that somehow Bosch had knowledge of the  Visio Tungdali, a twelfth century handwriting that desribes a vision of a journey through hell. This was possibly the basis for this devil, crowned with a cauldron, symbolising the diabolical inferno fire.
He is sat on a night-chair, which offers him the possibility of excreting the gorged souls. His curious footwear in the shape of pitchers symbolises dipsomania.
