Hnery Fuseli - Prospero, Miranda, Caliban, and Ariel - c

Caliban is shown here in opposition to Prospero. With the exception of the Goblinoid face and ears, Caliban does look human. What really stands out in this painting is the artistic allusion to God and Adam reaching towards each other with Prospero as God and Ariel as one of his angels.
