Figures in Blue, a novelette by Ted Morrissey, is the story of Esteban Espiritu, a young Spanish artist who is commissioned to paint the portrait of Kristena von Lichtenberg, an elderly Baroness living in a deteriorating mansion that overlooks a provincial German village.  However, Esteban uncovers a local mystery about the disappearance of her brutish husband, the Baron.  The novelette is set in the beginning of the twentieth century and references classical mythology.
