Shades, leaving the depth of their graves…

Achille Devéria, from Légendes ballades et fabliaux vol. 1, by Pierre-Marie-François Baour-Lormian, Paris, 1829.

At the time this book was published, Baour-Lormian was an already aging author, considered as a classicist, to put things politely, by the rising generation. Devéria who was then a young and wild Romantic, cared very little for being associated with the old guard in any way, and he only accepted to do this set of illustrations on the condition that his name wouldn’t be mentioned anywhere.

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.)
