Fuseli now explores the work of this romantic artist from the perspective of his Swiss countrymen. This lavishly illustrated collection examines Fuseliâs most famous paintings, populated by elemental spirits, goblins, and other deliciously strange creatures, as well as the artistâs early sketches, his monumental historical paintings, and his rarely seen erotic drawings.Â
Accompanying critical essays trace Fuseliâs own evolutionâfrom his forced exile at twenty-five after publishing a volatile pamphlet against the local ZÃ¼rich government, to his later activities as a member of the British Royal Academy of Arts.Â
The most comprehensive volume ever published on this master of the fantastic, Fuseli will serve as the perfect complement to exhibitions at the Kunsthaus ZÃ¼rich in Switzerland and the Tate Gallery of Britain in 2006.
About: In England, Henry Fuseli was known as the âWild Swissâ, but he was nevertheless seen as a very British artist, famous for his illustrations of the works of William Shakespeare and John Milton.
