John Anster Fitzgerald

John Anster Christian Fitzgerald (1819? – 1906) was a Victorian era fairy painter and portrait artist. He was nicknamed "Fairy Fitzgerald" for his main genre. Many of his fairy paintings are dark and contain images of ghouls, demons, and references to drug use; his work has been compared to the surreal nightmare-scapes of Hieronymus Bosch and Pieter Brueghel.

Then two sleeping women by Fitzgerald: first one is having pleasant dreams, the next one nightmares
