Devil and the woman

Death of a sinner



U 6.851-2: Devil in that picture of sinner's death showing him a woman. Dying to embrace her in his shirt.


So far no picture has come to light in commentaries on Ulysses that corresponds to Bloom's description above.

This late-19th century print from an Upper Bavarian farmhouse was available throughout Europe, as the French, German, Spanish, English and Italian captions show:

Collection of the Zurich James Joyce Foundation

There are several variants online (see here and here), with the first link perhaps showing an image closest to Bloom's description.
