More About Art of the Devil by Arturo Graf
 
 
 
Overview
Satan, Beelzebub, Lucifer-the Devil has many names and faces, all of which have always served artists such as Hieronymus Bosch, Dante, Goethe or Rodin as a source of inspiration. Often commissioned by religious leaders as images of fear or veneration, depending on the society, representations of the underworld served to instruct believers and lead them along the path of righteousness. It also provided a means of denouncing the moral decrepitude of one's contemporaries for some artists. The author, Arturo Graf, explores the story of the Devil through the ages and gives an impassioned description of its evolution.
