Alexander Ver Huell (1822-1897)







Not long ago, I posted about an enigmatic postcard I had purchased in Ghent. Who was the artist? What was the story? A number of Morbid Anatomy readers pointed me in the direction of Dutch illustrator Alexander Ver Huell. Today Bibliodyssey posted more about this man and his fantastical and macabre art work--all images above drawn from that post.

See more (and find out more about the illustrator) here. Thanks to friend to Morbid Anatomy Paul Rumsey for alerting me to this post!
