At the age of five he was noted for pranks, but by fifteen, he was regularly employed as an illustrator in Paris. He's most celebrated as an artist who created dark dreamscapes, as seen in his depictions of Satan, and the eerie pictures in Poe's Raven. He is also a master of landscape as a powerful backdrop for leather-winged angels and demons. He continues to inspire book illustrators-from N. C. Wyeth, to Brian Selznick. Let the illustrations conjure up their own magic for you.
