Saint Wolfgang and the Devil by Michael Pacher
It's one of the outer panels on the altar in the church in St. Wolfgang, Austria.
The painting is a depiction of the time Wolfgang of Regensburg forced the devil to help him build him a church.
Had to google around a bit for that.

Do you ever look around the monsterbrains blog. I think you'd like a lot of things they post there.

i used to oogle over this in an
book about everything 'horror'. Especially the ass-face still intrigues me to this very day
