Subject:        Stage Devils in Art

Does anyone know of an early graphic representation of a stage devil in
a play?  I thought I had found one in Pieter Brueghel the Younger's "A
Village Fete," dated 1632, which includes a scene from the Dutch
"Trick-Water Farce."  Bob Potter assures me, however, that the farce in
question involves a real monk seducing a woman, not a devil disguised as
a monk, as some have suggested.

Any pictures of devils in early plays would be greatly appreciated.
Pleasereply off-line.

Thanks,
John Cox
