Entymologist's Dream

The Entomologist's Dream (originally The Entomologist's Dream is an illustration for the story, Le Papillon Rouge (The Red Butterfly) by Gerard D’Houville. The story was published in the Christmas 1909 edition of L'Illustration, the French news and art magazine. In the story, the entomologist is driven mad by his failure to find a blood red butterfly for the lady whose attentions he seeks. One night, after many years of searching, he ransacks his entire butterfly collection. As he frees the insects from their cases, they magically wake and fly off into the night. The entomologist is heartbroken, and is discovered dead in the morning.
