Here is Vincent as Prince Prospero's "Death" staring him in the face -- from The Masque of the Red Death, the seventh in the Poe cycle. The different-colored figures of Death in the background are in another part of the film, but are such a brilliant riff on Ingmar Bergman's The Seventh Seal, that I had to include them. This second portrait of Price as H.P. Lovecraft's possessed Charles Dexter Ward conveys the "haughtiness" of Price in his "Haunted Palace" dual role, I've been told. It's appearing as an ad for my art services in Famous Monsters of Filmland's Lovecraft issue (#255) and in an upcoming issue of Dark Discoveries -- the latter zine featuring an article by me on that great movie.
