I've fallen head over heels for the Symbolists. In trawling the internet I've also seen quite a few great modern paintings in a Symbolist vein. I should post some of those too.

The angel from Death of the Gravedigger would make good science fiction cover art, or Masquerade costume.

Yeah, I kind of wonder whether that one has been used as a book cover. The wounded angel one looks familiar too. The Duncan almost looks like one of my mom's quilts.

Another vote for more Symbolist art, which I'd not seen until you discovered it.
