WILLIAM AYTON AND BOCKLIN'S ISLE OF THE DEAD

Born in England, lives in Hudson Valley, NY, USA

The power of the painting somehow resides in the combination of mystery & majesty; gloomy yet glowing lighting, the dark sky & water, the cypress trees & the shrouded figure on the boat, & the sense of stillness & the inevitable calm of death. The center of the painting is a dark void formed by the murky cypress trees. The piece is dense with atmosphere, and the work has become an icon of sorts to many.
W.Ayton, June 12, 2009 in his blog.
