One of the things I love about the Victorians was their obsession with propriety yet the huge roiling undercurrent of dark weirdness that also went on during those times. Richard Dadd was a painter who focused often on painting fairies...he also went nuts and killed his father. Many of his painting were made in the asylum. A sad story- but interesting paintings!
