A series of fires occurred across the UK but the most strange thing was that all burned black to ash except for a picture of a crying boy.
At midnight one day in 1985, a South Yorkshire house was on fire, everything in the house burned black to ash, the only thing that remained intact was a picture of him. baby is crying. Shortly thereafter, there were a series of fires in the area and all burned black except for a picture of a crying boy.
It is known that an Italian painter named Jac Bragolin (another name is Bruno Amadio or Franchot Seville) draws about 50 pictures of a crying boy. The painting was inspired by the tragedies of war, especially the Second World War. These paintings are quite famous and loved by many families, bought and hung in the living room. In 1950-1970, this is one of the pictures that are very popular among young couples.
After many fires occurred across the UK, people began to believe in strange and spooky things about the “Little Boy crying” painting. Even, some people even thought that the painting was haunted for some mysterious reason. The “curse” of the “Crying Boy” painting spread throughout England and made many people shudder. A typical story about the fire and the curse has spread, making rumors more fundamental and confusing public opinion.
Officer Rotherham, Alan Wilkinson, who directly recorded 50 fires “Crying Boy” since 1973, said the cause of death was due to human indifference and carelessness. However, he did not have an explanation for the picture “Crying Boy”, and that was what the journalist and reporter jumped into the investigation.
Many assumptions were made to explain this baseless “curse”. Writer and actor Steven Punt also started investigating this ghost picture. He went to Jane McCutchin, who hung a print “Crying Boy” in his living room. Jane was a mother of two, she was cleaning the kitchen when she discovered that the curtains suddenly caught fire. Her family escaped death but the whole house was completely destroyed, except for the only painting hanging in the living room, the picture “Crying Boy”.
Authorities say this is a coincidence, because most of the fire is caused by cigarettes, frying pans, short-circuiting or fire to a nearby flammable object. However, Steven Punt could not explain why the painting was not burnt so he took Jane’s “Crying Boy” picture to study. Punt brought the painting to the researcher Martin Shipp to check. They surmised that the painting might have been applied with a flame-retardant varnish, while printed on a fire-resistant material, the painting was not burnt in the fire.
However, at the time of 1985, this explanation was difficult to accept. The people of England who were handed the nose should put their faith in the “haunted curse” completely.
