Spooktacular Artwork (Inspired by Poe)

“Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there wondering, fearing,
Doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before”
                                                                —Edgar Allan Poe, “The Raven”

You can see first-hand how works like “The Raven” influenced works of art at The Baltimore Museum of Art’s special exhibition, Edgar Allan Poe: A Baltimore Icon. The show includes 80 prints, drawings and illustrated books by artists—such as Gauguin, Manet, Matisse, Odilon Redon, René Magritte, Robert Motherwell and others—whose works were inspired by Poe’s sinister stories.

Happy Weekend!
