Frontispiece to Goethe’s Faust illustrated by Eugène Delacroix.

Achille Devéria, From Les monstres dans l’art (Monsters in art), by Edmond Valton, Paris, 1905.

(This artwork is sometimes - in this book, for instance - mistakenly attributed to Delacroix. It was initially used on the front cover of the copies of Faust sold without binding, and is not part of the series of illustrations created by Delacroix.)
