Original: 11"x14", Oil on Board. "...A hound it was, an enormous coal-black hound, but
not such a hound as mortal eyes have ever seen. Fire burst from its open mouth, its eyes
glowed with a smoldering glare, its muzzle and hackles and dewlap were outlined in
flickering flame. Never in the delirious dream of a disordered brain could anything more
savage, more appalling, more hellish be conceived than that dark form and savage face
which broke upon us out of the wall of fog."
-Sherlock Holmes and The Hound of the Baskervilles
What better style in which to illustrate this creature, than that of French painter
Eugene Delacroix (1798-1863), whose interest in suffering, insanity, death and violence is
always present in his art; which is essentially literary and personal.
