Great erotic illustrations by outstanding master of art:
Umberto Brunelleschi (1879-1949) was born in Italy, but in 1900 he moved to France, where he became a publisher, book illustrator and author of theater sets and costumes. The artist drew illustrations for several large fashion magazines published in France.
Between the two world wars he worked on the design of sets and costumes for several theaters, including the famous Folies-Bergeres in Paris, the Roxy Theater in New York and La Scala in Milan. Among the books he illustrated, "Candide" Voltaire, a collection of tales of Charles Perrault and "Masks and characters of the Italian comedy."
Toward the end of his life, he made a number of erotic illustrations. Judging by them, Brunelleschi clearly understood the erotic. He also created illustrations for the scabrous poem "Tales" ("Contes") de La Fontaine, which he wrote in 1664 and dedicated his patroness - the Duchess of Bouillon. These tales, gleaned from Boccaccio, Petronius, Apuleius, Ariosto, Rabelais and Margarita of Navarre, had a loud but scandalous success. They survived four editions (1667-1674), after which they were banned and brought to Lafontaine the King's displeasure.
