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.
