Arnold Böcklin, 1827 – 1901, Swiss symbolist painter. His pictures portray mythological, fantastical figures along classical architecture constructions (often revealing an obsession with death), creating a strange, fantasy world.
Böcklin's art influenced Surrealist painters such as Max Ernst and Salvador Dalí.
