Halloween: Spellbinding Inspiration from the MHG Archives

Predating tricks and treats, the origins of All Hallows' Eve can be traced back to Samhain, an ancient Celtic festival in which bonfires and costumes are employed as a means of warding off evil spirits believed to be ushered in with the harvest season and "dark half of the year." Over centuries of dissemination, the pagan tradition is more or less continued under the contemporaneous guise of Halloween. From shock rock iconoclasts to the hauntingly beautiful creatures of New York City's avant garde underworld, we're conjuring up some dark-tempered highlights from the archives in antici-PATION of the most spellbinding time of year. Whether you're in search of some costume inspiration or contemplating a macabre addition to your personal art collection, peruse these bewitching classics available for purchase as fine art prints from your local Morrison Hotel Gallery representative or our complimentary online concierge service.
