Another cause for disturbance is the combination of these scenes with the objective style in which they are presented. Francisco José de Goya y Lucientes at least had the odd scenes of his Caprichos appear in the twilight of aquatint, and Max Ernst set his fantastic saints and monsters in an equally unreal, garish light of expansive, bare landscapes. The fact that the fantastic in the work of Claudia Renz, in contrast, is presented so matter-of-factly, so soberly, is what makes it so baffling.
