Arnold Böcklin was a Symbolist painter, which means I pretty much love him by default. Did I mention Symbolism was my favorite art movement? Probably a dozen times by now, but anyway . . . Although I categorize everything in Jugend as illustration, this is actually a black and white reproduction of Böcklin’s painting The Honeymoon (retitled Spring) so this is a young married couple–very young, actually, considering the boy doesn’t have any facial hair yet.
