This scarce engraving could not be found in Hollstein by an expert of the Rijksmuseum, the subject seems to point in the direction of Jheronymus Bosch, the expert at the Rijksmuseum thinks it is logical to link the iconography to Bosch, however his name is not on the print. Passavant wrote about this engraving the following, 1863: J.B. Passavant, Le Peinte-Graveur, Leipzig 1863, dl. 4, p. 284, no. 205 :
''The monk hunts. a woman shows him the door open while another hits him on the head with a bellows. A rider and a lady sitting at a table richly served contemplate this spectacle with astonishment. We read at the top: WI.HEBBE.PANT.RVEMT.NU.HET.LANT.HOE.LEEP.GECAPT.WY.MAKENT.APT.1521''
In the book on Jheronymus Bosch by D.Bax ''Hieronymus Bosch, his picture-writing deciphered'' - In drawings attributed to Bosch shows us woman holding a pair of bellows over the head of another plus thesame fallen chair.
In D.Bax his words on the Bellows
''It seems more that the artist meant to imply that the head of the mocked woman contains nothing but air. The festive mood here again suggests the symbolism of folly, and this brings us to the following instances. The Bellows became a figure of empty-headedness, stupidity. The bellows serves as a symbol of folly also in the 16th century saying [the fool has come to the bellows; that is: the fool has met his equal]
