Symbolism  ·  Famous masterpieces

"The Island of the Dead", written around 1880, is probably one of the most famous works of Arnold Böcklin. The painting depicts a rowing boat on which two shadowy, human figures travel towards an island with a house embedded in its cliff. Overall, the picture captivates through a gloomy atmosphere, which becomes particularly tangible through a gray sky and the dark sea. In contrast, there are few bright elements.
