Godfried Schalcken: Self Portrait [Apr. 14th, 2013|11:02 am]
Tony Grist

Sheridan Le Fanu wrote a creepy story about "Schalcken the Painter". It turns out he was real person- and a master of candlelight. This dramatic self-portrait is on display at the Royal Pump Rooms in Leamington Spa. I suppose Le Fanu may have seen it there.

It's worth checking him out on Wikimedia Commons. I had several images to chose from- all equally stunning.

Looks like a rather young Baldric.
