Interesting art

As part of this weblog, I want to introduce various works of art. Not the usual boring paintings, but the strange and the weird. I love The National Gallery in London. I think that it's a wonderful thing to be able to wander around there for free. The last time I went there, my eye was caught by this chap, not having a terribly good day. The artist is Cornelis van Harlem, about whom not a great deal seems to be known.

I have found out a little bit about the myth behind the painting. There is a brief account of it here, and a more comprehensive one here.

Interesting painting, if a tad gruesome. Looks like something Richard Upton Pickman might have painted.

Interesting that it's about someone named Cadmus--there's an American artist named Paul Cadmus.
