Kubin is irrefutably one of the most original talents of his
generation. Whether painting directly from his hallucinatory
visions or illustrating the works of such literary giants as
Balzac, Poe, Dostoevsky, and Gogol, Kubin eschewed the
decorative artistry of earlier Austrian art. Instead, he was
drawn to life's dark undertones, represented in his work
through his morbid subject matter and frenetic style. Filled
with horrific yet fully realized imaginings that were eerily
prescient of the era to come, this volume is certain to
introduce Kubin to a wider audience; perhaps to an entire
generation who see in art a way to contend with the upheaval
and tribulation of their own time.
