Anthony Angarola is alluded to in ''Pickman's Model'' and ''The Call of Cthulhu''. I have found seven of his illustrations:
The same warning accompanies Angarola's work as does that of Sidney Syme -- certain pieces are obscene. There is, however, a grotesque quality about Angarola's nudes that suggests, in addition to the lamentable indecency, an impression and more than an impression of the twisted prancing and bellowing of the maddened cultists of Khlul-hloo or a Bacchic frenzy.
If the reader is strong enough and academic enough to regard them in that light it is very clear why Lovecraft wrote ''On this now leaped and twisted a more indescribable horde of human abnormality than any but a Sime or an Angarola could paint.''
