Isle of the Dead
When I saw for the first time these two paintings, I thought to myself: "it is impossible to know by the Internet how a painting really looks". But then I realise that there are five versions of this famous symbolist painting, and we're seeing in this post the first (1880) and the fifth (1888). Arnold Böcklin is also the author of the painting: Isle of the Living (Die Lebensinsel, 1888), but it is not so beautiful as "Isle of the Dead" (Die Toteninsel). Lost fans, please be aware of the driver from Oceanic (last episode) with the name "Bocklin".
