Illustration by Harry Clarke for a 1925 edition of Goethe's Faust

"Fantasy Based on Goethe's 'Faust'" (1834), by Theodor von Holst (1810-1844), the daemonic figure to the left is perhaps identifiable as Faust's companion, Mephistopheles, an agent of Hell, perhaps participating in the witches' Sabbath during Walpurgis Night.
