Weird Wednesday

'Skeletons Fighting over a Hanged Man", painted in 1891 by James Ensor, a Flemish contemporary of Felicien Rops (see a previous Weird Wednesday) much of whose work seems to be obsessed with skulls, death and grotesque masked faces. Macabre, darkly comic and more than abit nuts. I love it, naturally.
