Pen and Pencil on Vellum with Vintage Wallpaper

In the novel 'Frankenstein: Or, the Modern Prometheus", Victor Frankenstein, a young medical student obsessed with mimicking nature, develops a method for animating the inanimate. He assembles a large humanoid creature, and succeeds in bringing it to life, only to find himself disgusted by the creature's hideous appearance. Rejected by its creator, the creature escapes, and wreaks vengeance on Frankenstein and his family.
The spark of her novel 'Frankenstein' came to Mary Shelley in Switzerland, during the stromy summer of 1816, in a dream. One night, anxious to create a ghost story to tell her friends at Villa Diodati, she dreamt of a scientist with the power to use electricity to bring a corpse back to life. She thought: "I need only describe this specter which has haunted my midnight pillow". And thus 'Frankenstein was born.
