Isle of the Dead Number Three

This is my favourite of the five versions painted by Arnold Bocklin.

Establishes a fabulous, somber mood. Very representative of the Symbolists.

Took the picture in Alte museum.


  1. I like Gigers interpretation of this painting:
    Less subtle, but hellishly creepy :)

  2. I loved Giger, then saw him as a repetitive, one trick pony before coming round full circle and loving his work again.

    And I agree, his work is wonderfully atmospheric and creepy. Perfect for the Alien franchise.
