According to the official website:

"This focused exhibition explores the darker side of the imagination through a variety of works on paper depicting death, witchcraft, and the demonic in European art. While Renaissance prints often presented the concept of horror through the lens of Christian philosophy—as the manifestation of sin and hell or as allegories of the dangers of temptation—monsters from the realm of folklore and popular culture also served to both admonish and thrill."

The exhibition runs through December 15, in the Huntington Art Gallery, Works on Paper Room.
