This paper will argue that Moreau’s depiction of the female embodies the seductive and destructive nature of death which preoccupied the arts and literature of the late nineteenth-century. Moreau’s Evening and Sorrow, effectively conveys the increased interest in emotions, and psychology, as a counter-action to the predominance of natural sciences, during the late-nineteenth century.
