About This Piece
The Art
The Nightmare c The feeling of suffocating anxiety experienced in a nightmare is represented by the demon sitting on the dreamers chest with implied sexual menace while the terrifying image of the horse intrudes into the room through parted curtains This is Fuselis second work on the theme Freud is supposed to have had an engraving of the image on the wall of his waiting room From the collection of the Goethe Museum Frankfurt Germany

This giclée print delivers a vivid image with maximum color accuracy and exceptional resolution. The standard for museums and galleries around the world, giclée is a printing process where millions of ink droplets are “sprayed” onto high-quality paper. With the great degree of detail and smooth transitions of color gradients, giclée prints appear much more realistic than other reproduction prints. The high-quality paper (235 gsm) is acid free with a smooth surface.

The Artist
A prominent Romantic artist, Henry Fuseli (1747 – 1825) regarded horrifying and grotesque subjects as fascinating and beautiful. Originally trained to be a priest, Fuseli instead became an artist, impassioned by the works of Michelangelo, whose style he strove to replicate during his career. A major portion of his works depicted scenes from Shakespeare and Milton, powerfully conveyed in his intense, imaginative style. Disturbing and erotic, “The Nightmare” was his best-known painting. It solidified his popularity as an artist, and has been reproduced in countless contexts. Ahead of his time, Fuseli strongly impacted the Expressionists and Surrealists.
