Felicien Rops is a very surprising artist. Engraver and drawer of exception, Felicien Rops captures and anticipates, with an astonishing talent, the female bodies with great modernity. Abandoning the conventional forms of the time, the artist creates a world full of humour, tenderness and, at times, insolence for the jubilation of the spectator's eye.
Patrick Bade analyses the artist's work and its theatrical conception with an exquisite humour, as though we were all actors more or less conscious of the symbolic and literary vision of the world.
Patrick Bade is a leading art historian, international guest speaker, and senior lecturer at Christie’s Education in Modern Art Studies. A respected authority, he has written numerous publications, including books on Beardsley and Renoir,also published by Parkstone.
