His paintings were overrated. We actually studied many of his earlier drawings to show recurring symbolic elements, which gets a little flowery and meh to get into here. Besides all things horror-genre related, this is the only other subject I’m actually qualified to give an educated opinion about.

At best, he was a mediocre artist. You’ll just have to trust me there.

True. But just think - if the professors had decided to admit him to art school instead of rejecting his application, WWII may never have happened.

It almost makes you think kindly of the “social promotions” so common in our public schools today.
