There ​can be many varying reasons for selling one’s soul to the devil. Fame, power, love; a distraction of this world can rapidly consume the entirety of one’s concentration until the distraction becomes that person’s very „reality”. It is fascinating to observe how the good in this world can be overlooked or neglected due to the singularity of one’s concentration on what is, ultimately, the „bad”.

The Picture of Dorian Gray is a story that captures such a concept and places it in the context of late nineteenth century London. Basil Hallward is a painter, one of amateur talents, but a painter that receives an inspiration that some like to call divine. A particularly new acquaintance of his, a Mr. Dorian Gray, seems to put all art into perspective for the aspiring artist. The result is a perfectly splendid picture of the beautiful Dorian Gray, who sits for Hallward in the epitome of innocence.
