From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia :
Isle of the Dead (German: Die Toteninsel) is the best-known painting of Swiss Symbolist artist Arnold Böcklin (1827–1901). Prints of the work were very popular in central Europe in the early 20th century—Vladimir Nabokov observed in his novel Despair that they were to be "found in every Berlin home."
Böcklin produced several different versions of the mysterious painting between 1880 and 1886.
