J. J. Grandville
A few weeks back I found this image and was curious who made it. Having found out it was by J.J Grandville, I've since discovered many other strange and surreal works by him. According to one website he is apparently known as "the Father of Surrealism". I guess that would make Hieronymus Bosch the grandfather? Anyway, to find out more about this French caricaturist from the 1800's, click here.
