The work of Carlos Schwabe can be described in one word: bizarre. Schwabe created some of the weirdest and creepiest paintings in all of Western art, ranging from the bloody and the horrifying to Romantic and touching scenes. Regardless of subject, however, all of Schwabe’s work exhibits a fiercely original mind and an expansive imagination.
