I'm not sure if she is up to any good... The Demoniac (1893) is a Symbolist painting by Joseph Middeleer (1865-1939), who tried a lot of different art styles during his career. Symbolist works don't always have a story that is easy to explain, as it was an expression of personal emotions through the combinations of colors and composition. In this work, we can see a young woman dressed in black sitting in a field of red flowers. It seems that we just interrupted her from her book as she is looking at us with large eyes. Or is she looking even higher, maybe searching for the moonlight? The title of this work, The Demoniac, suggests that she is not up to much good. Is she reading about some spells? #Art #Painting #Artwork #ArtHistory #HistoryofArt #OilPainting #OilonCanvas #BelgianArt #BelgianPainter #BelgianArtist #JosephMiddeleer #Middeleer #Symbolism #Symbolist #Demoniac #NoGood #Demons #Demon #Contrast #BlackandRed #RedandBlack #Intriguing #Interesting
