A Curious Portrait In Which The Furtive Count Philip Contemplates Sucking Your Blood

 This is not a dead Elizabethan, but nonetheless it's a very curious portrait. I found this fantastic photograph of the vampiric Count Philip on Flickr photographed by Jean Louis Mazieres.

Count Philip is up to no damn good. But it's a beautiful painting.
