  • Henry Fuseli's "The Nightmare" (1781), a classical depiction of what is now recognized as old hag syndrome. Typically, the victim wakes up unable to move, barely able to breathe, and with an oppressive weight pressing down on his chest. Unsurprisingly, this can also lead to the feeling of an evil presence in the room.
