John Coulthart

His work appears in histories of Symbolist art although it's nearly always The Lake which they show. Understandable, I suppose, since it's such a bizarre painting. Tom Rapp used it on the sleeve of one of his Pearls Before Swine albums in the 1970s although I forget which one.

Incidentally, I am from Belgium (which explains why we have some more obscure Belgian artists on the website) and even here Léon Frédéric is completely unknown to the general public. His main problem might be that you cannot really put him in one particular art style/movement which makes him a less obvious choice for exhibition creators.


Wonderful! Reminds me of Flaming June crossed with JWW's St. Eulalia. Which also reminds me of a poem I just read. . .
