Pictures of ghosts - Drawings and paintings of ghosts

The pictures of ghosts below come from four different traditions. The first picture is a surrealistic painting by Salvador Dalí from 1934. It is entitled The Ghost of Vermeer of Delft Which Can Be Used As a Table.

The second picture is Ossian Receiving the Ghosts of French Heroes. It was painted by Anne-Louise Girodet de Roucy-Trioson in 1802.

The third picture is similar to the second one, only it shows the rising of ghosts. It is a painting by Gérard Francois entitled Ossian Awakening the Spirits on the Banks of the Lora with the Sound of his Harph. It was painted around 1801.

The fourth picture is the box cover of the Ghost in the Shell DVD, an anime movie about machines having spirits in the near future.

The fifth picture is a caricature drawing from an 1894 edition of the Punch magazine, showing ghosts playing golf.

The sixth picture is an image of a ghost on a print by the famous Japanese artist Hokusai.
