The appeal of the strange



I love artwork that has an aura of mystery. The script on the Christ drawing is indecipherable. The bizarre standing figure, with arms of bundled wire, is downright frightening. And the painting from the 1920s has a puzzling title: "Beyond the Veil No. 1." I suppose it is someone's depiction of the afterlife.

  1. I'm sure the artist made that painting in all sincerity, but it is bizarre!
