Hausler oftentimes incorporates literary overlaps in her work.  She has created this oil on canvas painting (complete with x-rays)  titled Bluebeard’s Place. The painting is based on the French folktale Bluebeard which was written by Charles Perrault in 1697.  Bluebeard is one of eight tales by the author first published by Barbin in Paris in Histoires ou Contes du temps passe. The chilling story chronicles a violent noblemen who murders his wives and the attempts of one wife to avoid the fate of her predecessors.
