Henry Fuseli is famous for his paintings and drawings of nude figures caught in strained poses suggestive of intense emotion. He had a affinity for inventing chilling fantasies, such as that in “The Nightmare”. He had a noticeable influence on the style of his younger contemporary, William Blake. Fuseli sketches numbered about 800; they have high qualities of invention, and are frequently superior to his paintings. His method included deliberately exaggerating the due proportions of the parts and throwing his figures into contorted attitudes. One technique involved setting down random points on a sheet, which then became the extreme points of the various limbs — rather like creating a constellation from the unintentional relations of stars. He rarely drew the figure from life, basing his art on study of the antique and Michelangelo. He produced no landscapes—"Damn Nature! It's always puts me out," was his characteristic exclamation—and painted only two portraits. .
