|Barlach's adaptation of Goethe's Walpurgisnacht scene|
Ok, enough of the art lesson and on to what you see to the left. This here is one of a series of woodcuts by Ernst Barlach, made back in the 1920s, to illustrate Goethe's Walpurgisnacht (Halloween) scene in Faust. I had no idea there was a Halloween scene in Faust! I'm not particularly familiar with the play except that it's a story about some guy who makes a deal with the Devil.
There are several woodcuts illustrating this scene but this is my favourite! It's a witch riding a flying table to, presumably, a Sabat on Halloween night.
