Satan

Jean-Jacques Feuchère (French, 1807-1852)


One aspect of the Romantic movement was a preoccupation with the macabre, and images of Satan epitomized that outlook.

Feuchère created a dejected Satan after the fall, with talons and bat-like wings, in a brooding position not unlike that of Rodin's Thinker.
