Ruins in a Moonlit Landscape by Arnold Böcklin

Oil on Canvas, 9½ by 12¾ inches, 1849

For this Halloween, I thought I'd share a nocturne painting by Swiss Symbolist painter Arnold Böcklin. You may also enjoy some of his other dark works including Self-portrait with Death playing the Fiddle and Isle of the Dead. Happy Halloween!
