The latest video in my Erotographica collection features Felix Vallotton (1865-1925).
Vollotton remained one of the leading figures of Symbolism until his death. He turned his unsparing gaze on the double standards of the Parisian bourgeoisie, the raging battle of the sexes, and the new self-assurance of women. In his paintings and prints he exposes his protagonists by placing them in carefully constructed, stage-like settings. In their veiled eroticism and starkly realistic style of painting, Vollotton's nudes are surprisingly modern.
