Halloween is upon us! It is a time for trick-or-treating, costume parties, pumpkin carving—and, of course, spooky art. To mark the occasion, we at Artnet Gallery Network have scoured thousands of artworks to find the spookiest, scariest, most spine-chilling pieces available. Inspired by the uncanny and the macabre, the works below feature a hair-raising cast of creepy creatures from spiders and witches to monsters and skeletons.
