Summary
"Occult topics have long fascinated artists, and the subject of witches - their imagined bodies and fantastic rituals - was a popular one for painters and print-makers in early modern Europe. Focusing on several artists in depth. Linda C. Hults probes the historical and theoretical contexts of their work to examine the ways witches were depicted and the motivations for those depictions." "While studying the work of such artists as Durer, Baldung, Jacques de Gheyn II, and Goya. Hults discerns patterns suggesting that the imagery of witchcraft served as both an expression of artistic license and as a tool of self-promotion for the artists."--BOOK JACKET
