The fall of Lucifer
This is one of the earliest paintings in the collection and in a northern European tradition introduces elements of the grotesque. Set in a seascape and landscape the forces of good and evil are engaged in a struggle. This is enacted through a direct representation of the biblical story of the fall of Lucifer and through the battles portrayed in the bottom right between the ships and on land. The ships fire at each other and, on the land, a battle is under way between the troops on the shoreline, some of which are mounted.
