It is sweeter to wander with the wretched and outcasts than to sit crowned with roses at the banquets of the rich

exile and utopia...

Traditionally this beautifully evocative painting by Edvard Munch has been known as The Vampyr. It suggests the bite of The Vampyr on the un/willing victim. Being neither willing or unwilling victim, I know that this painting was actually titled by Munch, Love and Pain, and suggests the necessary eternal passions as they revolve around human beings in a relationship. The love side is strong and so is the pain of that love.
As a beautiful aside, you could read the text to Baudelaire's poem The Vampyr and see more of the same...
