Master of the Worm Eaten Skull

Aeron Alfrey - Master of the Worm-Eaten Skull, Fabric Print

Every day this week I will be running a different discount on available artwork, making new art available and posting for sale a couple of rare signed books with my art.

Today I am offering the 4 ½ x 3 foot fabric art print of my homage to the Master of the Worm-Eaten Skull with a 25 percent discount.  I’ve got a few of these left, get one while they’re still available!  Included bonuses with this artwork are Monster Brains Postcards and my Baba Yaga mini art print.

"The main body of Mossa's public and private art work was created with water colours and strong ink lines, the subjects including caricatures, Carnival or medieval scenes, portraits and landscapes, with a fascination for the French Riveria in particular.  He also created wooden reliefs, designed theater scenery, wrote literary essays and created book illustrations, including a large series of drawings for the work of Robert Schumann.

In 1902 he began collaborating with his father on the Nice Carnival project, designing floats and posters. Both father and son are still celebrated for raising the Carnival's prestige, and the event continues to be a major, large scale tourism attraction in Nice." - quote source Wikipedia

A gallery of photos from the Nice Carnival in France with works inspired by the art of Mossa can be found here.
