Arnold Böcklin, The Isle of the Dead (Die Toteninsel) - The fourth version



Date: 1884
Technique: Original in oil on copper, 81 x 151 cm

Financial imperatives resulted in a fourth version in 1884, which was ultimately acquired by the entrepreneur and art collector Baron Heinrich Thyssen and hung at his Berliner Bank subsidiary. It was burned after a bomb attack during World War II and survives only as a black-and-white photograph.
