The somewhat disquieting painting, Isle of the Dead, by the swiss artist Arnold Böcklin:
This is one version (dating from 1880) of five and it is thought he may have painted it near the cemetery where his baby daughter was buried.
Here’s another of Böcklin’s paintings:
Sergei Rachmaninov symphonic poem — The Isle of the Dead, inspired by the Böcklin painting and played by the St. Petersburg Philharmonic Orchestra:
I love this old piece of film which shows San Francisco in the 1920′s but I love the music even more: Rachmaninoff — Romance Opus 10, No. 6 and Moment Musical Opus16, No. 3.
Pianist is John P Lindsay — who uploaded the film.
