Satan Sowing Tares, Felicien Rops

Felicien Rops, part of the Decadent school (gilded and hedonistic offshoots of Romanticism), had some true creep credentials--he was a young country lad, who moved to Paris and fell in with the morbid poet Baudelaire, and spent the rest of his life making sensual and diabolical art. He would inspire some of the other artists in this series with his early Symbolism. This work, Satan Sowing Tares, pretty much speaks for itself. ad;lfkkjass;lkfjasl;kdfjksajjdf SO CREEPY.

Tim Wainwright

Tim Wainwright writes about monsters, sexual ethics, and public sector employee pension reform--and sometimes other things. You can follow him on twitter @Tim_Wainwright , because he has a strange desire to have people read the things he writes. He is growing to accept the fact that people will always call him "bud", and that he will never pull off the cowboy hat look.
