Avarice or greed is the central motif in Christ Driving the Traders from the Temple: the essence of the Bible passage is that Jesus drives the traders from the house of worship because their appetite for money has turned it into a place of commerce. The composition on which the four versions of the Traders painting are based seems quite close to Bosch – so close that it might originate from Bosch’s workshop, not too long after his death.
