the devil

by Joanna Baumgartner

Graphic from the Tarot series. The work relating to diabolicity bears its visible symbols. The heroine of the painting is a devil, a demon tempting with her attractive appearance, exposed breasts and alluring gaze. From her head, like two horns, grow tentacles. Her pearly hair and necklace shine, tempting with wealth. Her face splits, showing her true side.

The work refers extremely strongly to the image of the femme fatale, widely used in culture and art. It depicts a tempting, deceptive and amoral woman who is supposed to bring doom to the men she encounters. The motif, however, is older than the artworks of the early 20th century. It originates from ancient beliefs. Early examples of femme fatale include the Sumerian goddess Ishtar and the Biblical Salome, as well as Lilith from the Judaic tradition.
