Unfortunately I have only limited details about the following piece.
I took this photo on the fly at a museum several years ago in Quebec,
Canada, but I remember neither the name of the museum nor the name of the
piece. The museum itself had very little information available about
the work in question at the time, as I recall, except for the fact that it
was of Japanese origin most likely a kabuki character. The piece
is especially noteworthy because the incidence of albinism is lowest among
the Asian races.
The piece shown below, a painting by Brom of a character named Raguel, was created for Last Unicorn, a manufacturer of fantasy roleplaying games, and was featured in the February 1996 issue of Realms of Fantasy magazine. The specific game world Raguel is part of, called Heresy, is based on warring angels fallen to earth in a future setting. While no specific mention of albinism is made, the character's extraordinarily white skin and fair hair suggest an intent to give him a dramatic appearance.
