    Red face Can Anyone help to identify this painting?

    I've been searching for ages to find out who painted this piece and was wondering if anyone here could help me figure it out.

    I have no idea. She's certainly up to no good.

    Yeah, that's what I thought when I saw the bloody knife in her hand and part of an infant face down in a basin on the right.

    Not sure if that is another hapless baby in her lap.

    The painting appears here - http://soria-goig.com/historia/pedro...plandor_14.htm - which I think is about witches but I can't see details ... think it's just illustrating

    That basin is a cooking pot

    I did try google, but ended up on a site describing medieval torture.. ..nasty (to put it mildly).

    That link leads to a page that Chrome translates and I think it's to do with the Inquisition

    Thank you all for the help so far, I still can't find anything except that a band named deadbodieseverywhere has used it as their cover art. From my limited knowledge of art I would have to guess that it the virgin Mary based on the colours she's wearing and the baby who would be Jesus.

    Definitely not - she's a witch cutting up babies and cooking them.

    Ripp3r I was wondering if this is the complete painting because I see a knee on the left side that isn't on the one in the link zaphodeist posted. I find that very odd.

    Here are the two side by side.

    Never give up. You will never fail, you'll just find a whole lot of ways that don't work.

    At first look I thought Hogarth ... you know, one of those "look this is where drink gets you" prints. It seems to be a detail from a larger piece.
