philosophercat: (5th Doctor)


Romantic painter or reptilian plagiarist monkey?

Also "Chaos-Man."

I'm not even sure what this is: 'oh, don't come near me! he says, I vegetate in my moist solitude, if any approach me, I make them die!'

Is... that supposed to be Delacroix? I'm so confused. But I will never be able to shake the impression that he's actually a lizard monkey agent of chaos.

All courtesy of Thomas Couteur and his rage against Eugene Delacroix and Romanticism in general- but mostly Delacroix. Admit it, you can hear the "sighs of the damned" in that self-portrait, ~see~ him lurking in his poisoned pond, the shadows of his soul rising from his body like plague-laden vapors!

Or it's just that the burnt umber underpainting is showing through.
