"Lord Ruthven as 'The Vampyre'"
18 x 24 inch (w x h)
Pen and Pencil on Vellum with Vintage Wallpaper

In the novel 'The Vampyre' by Dr. John Polidori, Lord Ruthven is a handsome man of mystery, whose wit and charm have captivated London society, and who has embarked upon a trip to Europe with another young Englishman, Aubrey. In several places they visit, however, the mysterious deaths of innocent young girls (and rumors of vampires) lead Aubrey to become suspicious of his traveling companion. Ruthven's death seemingly puts an end to Aubrey's concerns, but, on returning to London, he finds Ruthven re-born. Aubrey collapses, and thus is unable to save his sister, who has become engaged to Ruthven, from a tragic death. The idea for his novel came to Polidori at Villa Diodati, on Lake Geneva, in Switzerland, during the stormy summer of 1816, when he and his compatriots, frequently confined indoors by bad weather, would amuse themselves by inventing ghost stories. Often cited as the forefather of modern vampire fiction, 'The Vampyre' was inspired by Lady Caroline Lamb's autobiographical novel 'Glenarvon' as well as by Polidori's unhappy personal relationship with Lord Byron. *Property of artist.
