The Evil Flowers (1900) By Carlos Schwabe

These are illustrations for the book “Les Fleurs du Mal”, or in English “The Flowers of Evil”. It contains poems by Charles Baudelaire.

I was able to find a translated copy of Baudlaire’s works. “Poems of Baudelaire” by Roy Campbell – Free to read online and download.

Aesculapian Decameron (1919) By Otto Wirsching

The original German name is “Ă„skulapischen Dekameron”. The meaning behind the title is unclear. ‘Aesculapian’ can refer to medicine. The only thing named “Decameron” is a set of 100 novellas by Italian Author Giovanni Boccaccio.

I’ll just nickname this piece “Skeleton Medicine Man”. đź’€
