BOSCH, Hieronymus
(b. ca. 1450, 's-Hertogenbosch, d. 1516, 's-Hertogenbosch)

Triptych of Temptation of St Anthony (detail)

Oil on panel
Museu Nacional de Arte Antiga, Lisbon

The picture shows a detail of the left wing, depicting the Rescue (after Fraenger).

In the foreground, the unconscious Anthony is carried across a bridge by two companions dressed in the habit of the Antonite Order, accompanied by a secular figure who has been identified with some plausibility as a self-portrait of Bosch.
