Saturn Devouring His Son (1819) - Francisco de Goya

Secret Museum, Naples

The Secret Museum (or Secret Cabinet) in Naples, Italy, is a separate section of the Naples National Archaeological Museum containing erotic artworks from the classical period.

In 1819, when king Francis I of Naples visited the exhibition at the National Museum with his wife and daughter, he was so embarrassed by the erotic artwork that he decided to have it locked away in a secret cabinet, accessible only to "people of mature age and respected morals."

The Vampyre (1819) - John William Polidori

The Vampyre: And Other Tales of the Macabre (1819) - John Polidori [Amazon.com] [FR] [DE] [UK]

The Vampyre is a short novel written by John William Polidori and generally regarded as the progenitor of the romantic vampire genre of fantasy fiction.

The Vampyre was first published on April 1, 1819, by Colburn in the New Monthly Magazine with the false attribution "A Tale by Lord Byron." The name of the work's protagonist, "Lord Ruthven," added to this assumption, for that name was originally used in Lady Caroline Lamb's novel Glenarvon, in which a thinly-disguised Byron figure was also named Lord Ruthven. Despite repeated denials by Byron and Polidori, the authorship often went unclarified. --http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Vampyre [Jan 2005]
