Gothic Nightmares

Henri Fuseli - The Nightmare (1781) detail
I didn't report on this exhibition earlier, because I thought it was overpriced at £7.50 and because I'm prejudiced against Tate Britain, which houses a lot of tripe. Having recently picked up a leaflet on Gothic Nightmares: Fuseli, Blake and the Romantic Imagination, I discovered it features one of my favourite weird paintings: Fuseli's Titania and Bottom (c1790). Maybe you should lash out on this one. It ends on 1 May 2006.
