Haunted/ cursed or just plain creepy paintings.
Hey, Happy New Year to you all. When I was a young child, my parents had a painting of a faceless man, I think he was holding a sword. It really frightened me and when I was a teenager I came across it again in a cabinet and nearly jumped out of my skin. It still gave me the shivers. I have never seen it since thankfully.
Many years ago while watching 'This morning' (back in the Richard and Judy days) a woman phoned to say that whilest having finished the first man in a painting of three men, she had a phonecall to say a family member had died. Sometime later, she took up the picture again and upon completion of the second man, another phonecall to say someone had died. She said she was too scared to paint the third man.
My friend also told me that her sister bought a print of 'The Crying Boy' painting which is believed to be haunted, and they had a run of bad luck afterwards. Eventually they tried to set fire to the print in the garden but it wouldn't catch so her dad poured parafin on it.
I'm not saying any of these paintings are haunted or cursed but I wonder if any of you have had or heard of any experiences with paintings that people believe may be responsible for unfortunate events or even the opposite. I would be interested to hear your experiences.
