Each sheet of the nearly six-foot-high work is reproduced at actual size, revealing Ensor's remarkable technique and fertile imagination. Here, Saint Anthony is surrounded not with nature - as customary - but with the moral decay of society. Replete with tiny scenes depicting both sexual temptation and spiritual piety, Ensor splices potent imagery from travelogues, popular science and technology magazines into a Symbolist masterpiece. Susan M. Canning and Kimberly J. Nichols recount the fascinating tale that led to the work's restoration and first public showing in more than sixty years."@en ;
