Ensor repeatedly repeated motifs from drawings in etching and later in lithography. An example of this is the work "Devils Teassing Me", which Ensor executed in drawing and then in etching and lithography. Ensor repeated the composition for a colour lithograph which served as a poster for his personal exhibition at the Salon des Cent in Paris and which was published by the French magazine La Plume (inv. 2003-AY). The Ensor exhibition was organised on the initiative of Ensor's friend Eugène Demolder. The exhibition ran from 15 December 1898 to 15 January 1899 at 31 rue Bonaparte in Paris. The depiction of Christ surrounded by bullying devils is taken from the drawing "Devils Teasing Me" from 1888 (Chicago, The Art Institute), later reworked in the etching and the lithograph of the same name both from 1895.
