Alfred Kubin created drawings that plumb the depths of the shadow world of the human subconscious, with its unguarded impulses and fears. Though a contemporary and fellow countryman of artist Gustav Klimt and designer Josef Hoffmann, Kubin eschewed the decorative impulses found in their work. Instead, inspired by the art of Francisco Goya, Felicien Rops, Max Klinger, James Ensor, and Edvard Munch, he produced dark, Hallucinatory visions of violence and eroticism.
Essays examine the artists early career. The more then 100 illustrations reveal an artist who was able to articulate our darkest nightmares with frightening clarity.
