John Henry Fuseli - The Nightmare 1781

There are many different interpretations of this painting and regardless of intent, Fuseli successfully managed to capture the essence of a nightmare. No one is immune to the occasional bad dream which makes The Nightmare a timeless and haunting image that leaves a lasting impression on any who gaze upon it.
