Luis Ricardo Falero: Sorcery and Fairies in nude paintings

"The Departure of the Witches"
or "The Vision of Faust" 1878
Faust's encounter with the world of Satan,
an encounter that takes place in the form
of a vision rather than as a physical
experience. Faust's reaction to these
figures with tiny eyes, sharp claws
and slimy hands is one of disorientation
asking 'Are these the ones who lost
themselves, believing Satan's Lies?'



Witch (1896)

Luis Ricardo Falero (1851 – December 7, 1896) was a Spanish painter. He specialized in female nudes and mythological and fantasy settings. Most of his paintings contained at least one female nude or topless nude. His most common medium was oil on canvas.
