Old School Scary Artists

This post is for the one voter who went against the pack, declared "I am not a Lemming!" and voted for a favorite part of Alone at Night that isn't "true scary stories". Here's some more freaky art.

There is a lot that artists can do with technology these days. Some truly amazing, and if desired terrifying art can be created. However, to us at Alone at Night, old school artists have made more chilling art than any Photoshop pro could dream of. Here's a few examples:


This is by Henry Fuseli, titled "The Nightmare" created in 1781.

and the one below by Peter Paul Rubens created in 1636 "Saturn Devouring his Son"





Then, of course, you have pretty much anything from the great Hieronymous Bosch



We love some of the scary art that digital artists are making these days, but sometimes you just have to go with the classics.



PS. If you haven't heard of any of these artists, (really? Not even hieronymous Bosch?!) then go to a museum, you uncultured clods.
