Ahasuerus at the End of the World is a late 19th century oil painting by Hungarian artist Adolf Hirémy-Hirschl. Done in oil on canvas, the work depicts the Old Testament King Ahasuerus witnessing the end of the world.[1][2][3] The exceedingly dark symbolism used in the work has been used to cite Hirschl as a Symbolist.[1][4][2]
