Never heard of him? Well, now you have…
He was a Belgian artist/printmaker [possibly even a graphic artist before the term was coined] and you can read all that you want on wikipedia, font of all knowledge. Heavily involved with Baudelaire which means expect lots of sex and death in his images – tagged as pornographic by many. I love his sympathetic pen strokes, his 2 fingers to the church etc. (as you can see [maybe?] from the header image where a woman is on the cross. It’s here anyway (The Temptation of St Anthony)
The other image is an engraving titles Le Werwolf. I stuck that in there as there was a point not too long ago where I thought I was a werewolf – not something I shared with many people thankfully and now I most definately know I’m not so that’s ok!
Anyway, maybe you learnt something…he’s pretty obscure, one of those characters you come across by accident (as I did) but never forget. And he went blind towards the end of his career so maybe there’s a warning there…but maybe not!
