Isle of the Dead—Lake Iseo, Lake District, Italy An island, with its prominant castle, surrounding vegetation, and approaching boat, emerges from the depths of Lake Iseo, suggesting parallels to Arnold Bocklin’s Symbolist painting of the same title. The glowing white sanctuary is suspended between a celestial light and the sepia-somber depths of the unconscious. "Just as it is the task of the poet to express feeling, so painting ought to elevate. A painting should tell something and give the spectator food for thought just as much as poetry does, and make an impression upon him as does a piece of music." Arnold Bocklin
