Rhinemaidens pursued by Alberich - Arthur Rackham

From Arthur Rackham's series of illustrations for Richard Wagner's Ring Cycle.  Evil pursues beauty.

  1. I love Arthur Rackham's work. They're so evocative. I have two prints of his on my wall. They remind me of those beautifully illustrated children's books that used to be availabe when I was (much) younger.
