Pieter Breughel the Elder

Triumph of Death:

Scorchin'. Most terrifying image of Medieval horror ever. Except maybe Bosch...but he's been so done...

This is in the Prado, in Madrid, where I used to live (1986-1990). Would see it once in a while. Not often enough. Find a bigger version, it's pretty awesome (in the actual true sense of the word).
