Image Title: An Evil Day

Description: A demon stands between an arguing man and woman; there is a bed and a table with games; a group of men drink, others gamble and two women gossip, ignoring a beggar in the background. The Latin superscription reads, "The evil day is driven out; a wonder, that late evening carries it off," and the text below, "Who attacks against peace, bringing anxiety to the troubled mind? The one in whom perverse desire consumes the light, which is driven out.".
