Legends of Anthony Abbot relate how the pious early Christian, forsaking society, journeyed into the wilderness to seek God. Anthony appears twice in this painting; in his foreground retreat, he resists the Devil's manifold temptations. After failing to yield to the evil lures, he is shown again being physically tortured while carried aloft by demons. Yet, the saint was saved by the purity of his soul.

The religious subject is presented in a revolutionary fashion; generations of earlier artists had tended to treat landscape as an unobtrusive backdrop of secondary importance, whereas now the landscape dominates the subject to such an extent that the temptation of Saint Anthony seems only incidental. This change of emphasis marks an important advance toward the development of pure landscape painting, in which Pieter Bruegel the Elder was an instrumental figure. Already, that delight in the natural world is apparent here in the shadowy depths of leafy forests, contrasting with open vistas of waterways, villages, and towns bathed in pearly light.

Perhaps the juxtaposition of a peaceful landscape with the temptations and attacks of demons was a subtle statement by this Bruegel follower on the political and moral brutalities of his time. Possibly Saint Anthony is meant allegorically to represent Everyman caught up in a world gone mad.

Your product material options

For every fine art print we offer a range of different materials and sizes. That is why, we allow you to choose among the following options:

  • Canvas: A printed canvas, which should not be mistaken with a canvas painting, is a digital copy printed on a UV direct printer. Also, a printed canvas produces a nice and pleasant feeling. A printed canvas of your favorite artwork will give you the unique chance of turning your art print into a large size artpiece. Hanging your canvas print: Canvas Prints have the advantage of being relatively low in weight. This means, it is easy and straightforward to hang up your Canvas print without extra wall-mounts. Hence, a canvas print is suited for all kinds of walls.
  • Printed poster (canvas material): A poster print is a UV printed sheet of flat canvas with a fine structure on the surface. It is particularly appropriate for placing the art replica with the help of a custom frame. Please bear in mind, that depending on the absolute size of the poster print we add a white margin between 2 - 6cm around the artwork in order to facilitate the framing with your custom frame.
  • Aluminium dibond (metal print): These are metal prints on alu dibond with an impressive effect of depth, which creates a contemporary look throuch a surface structure, which is non-reflective. The bright and white parts of the artpiece shine with a silky gloss, however without glow.
  • Printed acrylic glass (with real glass coating): An acrylic glass print, often denoted as a UV print on plexiglass, changes your favorite original into gorgeous home décor. What is more, the acrylic glass print is a good alternative to aluminium or canvas art prints.
