Until now, people still could not explain the strange phenomena happening around these paintings.
Art is something that is valued in life by the beautiful values that they bring. Many pictures can even arouse emotions and thoughts in the hearts of people watching them. But they are not always good emotions.
Man suffering – Anonymous
A man named Sean Robinson inherited the picture “The Anguished Man” from his grandmother. Until now people still do not know the identity of this painting artist, however there is a detail that Grandma Sean left, which is a picture of the artist mixing his own blood to color before suicide.
When Sean hung it on his house wall, a lot of strange things happened. Noise and mist began to appear in the house, and the doors were often mysteriously opened at night. The most frightening are the horror screams of unknown origin and the nightmares that his family faces. Robinson believes that the picture is the cause of his son falling down the stairs and making his wife always feel like someone is stroking his hair.
Mr. Robinson then placed the camera in front of the painting to find out what was really happening. Videos posted on YouTube show spooky activities such as paintings falling to the floor, slammed doors closed, and even smoke smoke rising from the drawing. Even so, many viewers thought it was nothing, that it was all a hoax.
Whether this painting is really haunted or not has never been concluded. However, Robinson announced keeping the cursed paintings in his basement and refusing to sell it.
Horror hands – Bill Stoneham
“The Hand Resist Him” was painted by the artist Stoneham in 1972. In the picture is a boy with a frowning face in a puzzled way, next to a scary large doll, along with it is very many hands behind the glass frame where he stood. This picture is also called “ebay ghost painting” because only after being sold here, people gradually discovered its bizarre.
A couple after buying this painting told them, they caught the boy and the doll constantly moving in the painting, sometimes they also disappeared. In the evening, they step out of the picture and stare at when they are sleeping.
The couple decided to put the camera in the room. The resulting image shows that when the night falls, the doll suddenly appears with a gun and looks towards the boy. A moment later, the boy disappeared from the picture.
Currently, the painting was bought by an art gallery in Grand Rapids, MI. Within 1 year of exhibition, there were two employees here who died.
The boy cried – Giovanni Bragolin
The picture is said to have the next curse not only one picture but a series of pictures called “The Boy Cry” (The Crying Boy). In the 1950s, Italian artist Bruno Amadio, also known by the stage name Giovanni Bragolin, painted over 65 portraits based on the image of Italian orphans. They are all crying. These products were sold as souvenirs to tourists in the context of the second world war.
It was not until 1980 that many people realized the “curse” behind these paintings. Firefighters in the area realized that houses with paintings on them almost had fires burning everything. But the only thing that doesn’t burn is these pictures.
Gentiles perceived that this painting was “haunted by the souls of the children of post-World War II. However, there are also opinions that these paintings are “haunted by the soul of the late adopted son of Giovanni Bragolin.”
The deceased mother – Edvard Munch
Edvard Munch is the author of the famous “scream” (The scream). But many people do not know that, in addition to the picture for life, he also has a famous picture because … haunted. It is the picture “The deceased mother” (The dead mother) he painted to commemorate his late mother.
The picture depicts a young girl whose dead mother is lying in bed while she tries to cover her ears and eyes that are wide but emotionless.
Some people who once owned this painting said they always felt the constant follow-up from her eyes in the picture. They even heard a clattering sound, as if someone were flipping a blanket and stood up.
Love letter – Richard King
Next on the list of haunted pictures is “Love Letters”, located at the Driskill hotel in Austin, Texas. People thought it was cursed by a little girl named Samantha Houston, a four-year-old daughter of an American senator. This girl died while staying at the hotel because she fell from a stairway to the ground while trying to chase a falling ball.
Many guests and staff at this hotel said they felt dizzy and nauseous when standing in front of the painting, some people even felt like they were lifted up into the air. Others claimed to see the figure of a little girl playing with the ball in the night.
Portrait of Bernardo de Galvez
Bernardo de Galvez (1746-1786) was a Spanish military leader, who helped the American colonies during the Revolutionary War. To commemorate his merit, a portrait of Bernando de Galvez was hung at the end of a hallway at the Galvez hotel ground floor.
It is rumored that the painting is the one that holds the soul of this talented general. Many witnesses recounted that the eyes in the picture constantly moved in their footsteps.
In addition, there is one odd thing: without permission from General Galvez before taking a picture, the photographs taken of this painting were fuzzy, blurry or blurry.
