    About this Artwork

    ALEXIS LADEAU (1794-1840). Frenchman and friend of Friedrich von Junzt. Ladeau came from the noble line of de Laudeau de Nevers; his father was killed during the Reign of Terror, but his mother escaped and gave birth to Alexis in Vienna. Ladeau returned to France in 1799, and he met von lunzt in Paris in 1825. In 1827 the two travelled to America and lived in New York for a while. While exploring in the Everglades, Ladeau caught malaria and was forced to return home in early 1829. In 1835, von Junzt called Ladeau to his family manor, where the two lived together until the completion of Unaussprechlichen Kulten the following year. On the day after the book was completed, however, von Junzt took a train to Saint Petersburg, and Ladeau was not to see him alive again. In 1840, Ladeau was present when von Junzt's Dusseldorf hotel room was opened and his body discovered. Ladeau bore away a manuscript von Junzt had been writing, and pieced it back together. Sadly, after he had read it, he destroyed it and cut his throat with a razor. (Some say that a few pages of this manuscript were buried with Ladeau, but if so they were taken when the Nazis dug up his body in 1942 in hopes of obtaining knowledge of sorcery.) Ladeau's only known book was Reminiscences of Friedrich Wilheim von Junzt (1846, Bridewall; 1898, Kielkopf), a slightly inaccurate look at the famous author's life. The Plastic Wax Factory, purveyors of intricate and fine molten effigies. All your gods, demons, monsters and creatures of the abyss to Leech Lords of the Cthulhu mythos, witches, warlocks, and lunatic residents of asylums the world over still murmuring their arcane incantations. Plus the odd tome, sigil, place of interest and manifestations of magical mumblings amongst the cursed. All are represented here in glorious molten plastic wax, set alight and melted into puddles of primordial grotesquerie. Recommended for the mad and delirious and those fine folks from Leeds, Hull and Scarborough.
