The Child's Problem


1857 Watercolour by the parricide Richard Dadd, who killed his father in 1843 thinking that he was the devil.

I've been fascinated with Richard Dadd ever since I saw a drawing by Jasper Johns called "Nothing At All Richard Dadd", which can be seen here (bottom right corner).

I don't know if you ever seen an original painting by Dadd. His handling of oil is amazing, he creates very strange 3-D effects with impasto. His work is very "overpainted" but that adds to the sense of mystery and morbidity of is art.
Here you can see it in detail:
