|Francisco de Goya, Half-submerged Dog. Painting, 1819-1823. Museo del Prado|
Inspired by Heather's The Witching Hour post, I thought I would ask you if there were any paintings you find spooky, creepy or scary?? These can be from the 18th century or any other period.

|Louis-Joseph Le Lorrain, Three Figures Dressed for a Masquerade. Oil on canvas, 1740s. The National Gallery of Art (Washington, D.C.)|
Thanks to the art of journal keeping and letter writing during the 18th century, I have come across a very interesting account of a Masquerade thrown in Turin in 1774.
