Pornocrates - Félicien Rops

Every once in a while we like to check out some of the old stuff - the masters as it were.. This gorgeous number we found while doing some research on engraving techniques.

Félicien Rops, Pornocrates 1896

Mr Rops was born in 1833 in Namur and was educated at the University of Brussels. He is often associated with the symbolists, who were acting against the naturalist movement.

All art history aside, we like the dreamy nature of this etching, and we're curious where that delicious looking swine is leading our heroine.

Perhaps to the kitchen.
