I did a copy of his painting "The island of the dead", probably his better work!

He's a maligned painter: he was a big influence on de Chirico. I'd love to see a retrospective of his work sometime.

I would classify Böcklin neither as little-known nor under-appreciated. A chaerming painting nonetheless.

Me neither Saskia. There are a wide variety of works posted here for different reasons. Lucien Freud is on here, for instance.
