Visitors scurry around the miser’s bedroom, including a demon holding a fiery lantern and a rat-faced beast inside the chest, holding a bag of gold. On the left, a skeleton enters the room with an arrow in his hand. This painting warns the viewer about greed: the miser has a choice between the money bag offered by the little monster and the pleas of the angel.</p> <p><a href="" target="_blank">read more</a></p> European Painting Flemish Painter For Kids Hieronymus Bosch Painting Learning to Look National Gallery of Art, Washington 48f6068b246cb694 Thu, 22 Sep 2011 13:12:09 +0000 s-sarraf 8801 at
