More about this artwork
The setting and the figures' clothes suggest the Renaissance period. The cloven foot and the horns of the attacker, on the right, mark him out as the devil. It could be Mephistopheles engaged in single combat with Faust, but no such scene exists in the Faust legend or Goethe¿s version of it.
