Richard Dadd - Sir Alexander Morison, Alienist (1852)
Hat in hand, as if bidding farewell, Alexander Morison, a pioneer of psychiatric medicine, stands before his estate in Newhaven, just north of Edinburgh. This portrait was painted at the end of Morison's seventeen years as consultant to Bethlem Asylum in Surrey. The artist, Richard Dadd, was one of Morison's patients. He had murdered his father believing him to be the devil. Dadd, hospitalised at Bethlem, did not visit Scotland, but based his image on a sketch by Morison's daughter. The two tiny women are fishwives, and are probably based on photographs taken by Hill and Adamson. (source)

Kyokichi Tanaka - Bather (1914)
This work depicts a woman hunched over washing her hair in a blood-red river current. This design was produced by Kyokichi Tanaka while attending art school with Koshiro Onchi and Shizuo Fujimori. During this time the three artists established the Tsukuhae (moon glow) art magazine, with the help of Takehisa Yumeiji. The artists produced seven issues containing numerous contributions by all three. This particular print is a standalone work: it was produced at the time of Tsukuhae but was not included in any of the issues. As with the work included in Tsukuhae, this print is heavily influenced by Symbolism and Expressionism, particularly in the German vein.
It is interesting to note that Tanaka was dying of tuberculosis when he produced this design. Full of inspiration and perhaps dread for his condition and its eventual outcome, Tanaka explored the subject of death and transcendence in his work. In particular, this print explores the poetics of death perhaps commenting on its omnipresence throughout life—striking the most beautiful or even the young. (source)
