    What a cool book for "Art Lovers" as well as casual viewers!

    This book will give you a great insight into the mind of an artist from this period. You can almost formulate what thought patterns gave rise to these amazing creative works. He creates from from the realm of fantasy to the real live conflicts of a socially accepted and prescribed notion of the afterlife. I found it curious how the constant worry of day to day existence juxtaposed with some of these fantastical representations of another world and the speculation of eternity.
