Alfred Kubin was a prominent Austrian artist who was active in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. He is known for his dark, surrealistic, and symbolist works, which often explored themes of death, decay, and the subconscious. One of his most famous works is The Past Forgotten, Swallowed, a series of etchings that he created in the early 1900s.
The Past Forgotten, Swallowed is a collection of 15 etchings that depict a range of disturbing and unsettling themes. Many of the images feature macabre scenes of death and decay, with twisted, gothic imagery that evokes the dark and eerie world of Kubin's other works. The etchings are rendered in a monochromatic palette, with only a few key elements picked out in brighter colors. This gives the images a sense of eerie, otherworldly atmosphere, and adds to the overall feeling of unease and uncertainty that pervades the series.

More info: Kubin was born in Bohemia, which was then part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. He had a troubled childhood and attempted suicide at the age of 19. He studied art in Munich, where he discovered the works of Odilon Redon, James Ensor, and Max Klinger, who inspired him to create his own imaginative and grotesque visions. He suffered a mental breakdown in 1903, which affected his style and themes.
In 1906, he moved to a secluded estate, where he spent most of his life. He became associated with the Blaue Reiter group of artists, and exhibited with them in 1912 and 1913. He also published his novel The Other Side in 1909, which was praised by Franz Kafka and Thomas Mann. He continued to produce drawings, watercolors, and lithographs until his death in 1959.
Alfred Kubin illustrated many books by authors such as Edgar Allan Poe and Fyodor Dostoyevsky. He lived in a castle in Zwickledt, Upper Austria from 1906 until his death on August 20, 1959. Kubin received several awards and honors for his work, such as the City of Vienna Prize for Visual Arts in 1950. His works are held in many museums and collections, such as the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
