Death and dying are among the omnipresent topics in the works of Swiss painter Arnold Böcklin. His sad inspiration was the loss of eight of his 14 children. One of his most famous works, The Island of the Dead, he painted between 1880 and 1886 in five versions, four of which have survived. The fifth and final version he made in 1886 for the Museum of Fine Arts in Leipzig, at a time when Europe was changing dramatically due to industrialization. The motif of the island of the dead is therefore also interpreted as a farewell to European culture. The viewer sees a seemingly female, veiled figure, which is brought together with an equally veiled coffin on an island. The sea is calm, but the sky is cloudy. Burial chambers are embedded in the rocks of the island. Between the rocks rise cypresses that stood in ancient mythology for death and mourning. © Meisterdrucke
