Okay, this one is a special case, but despite the picture's caption, I've just found out that this artwork is misidentified, certainly because it was mislabeled for centuries and used by Goethe to illustrate his version of Faust.

There is no dearth of classical illustrations for the myth, we probably can find one that will be more appealing to boot. Examples: [1], [2], [3]

I favor 1.1 too.

But that was just a quick Google; as usual, other suggestions are welcome.

Good enough. 1.1's in and tagged; caption?

Like previously, the title of the artwork and artist's name would be enough.

  • Faust's Pact with Mephisto, engraving by Julius Nisle after Goethe's Faust.

Or, for short:

  • Faust's Pact with Mephisto by Julius Nisle.

[up][up]I'd just favour the second since we already know its a pic of Faust since its the image of this page.
