AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Tale of romance, art and hypnotism. A self-sacrificing hypnotist and gentleman brings together the lady he loves and the middling artist she loves by inspiring the artist to paint a great portrait of the devil, thus satisfying his own ambitions and inspiring him to love the woman. Includes some discussion of artistic genius and references to Byron and Shelley. (PB)
