Huet (French)

Louis Gabriel Blanchet (French)
Rembrandt Michelangelo, as well as some other great masters, produced some incredible drawings and even paintings while sculptors like Riccio or Severano da Ravenna executed many licentious statuettes during the 16th Century. However, many sculptures and paintings produced during the 16th Century were destroyed in the name of decency and it now seems a pity that our ancestors did not bother about the artistic value of these works, which were so often committed to the flames, notably when Savonarole launched his terrifying campaign against perversion in 1494 in Florence, when Martin Luther caused a deep religious split in the 1520s and when Queen Anne of Austria ordered the destruction of hundreds of lustful pieces during the first half of the 17th Century in France. The world then had to wait until the 1730s for the reappearance of somewhat suggestive scenes in some daring paintings produced by Boucher, Fragonard, Baudoin, Huet and others. J.-B. Corot

Jean-Honoré Fragonard

Constantin Font (French) (1890-?)


Franz Russ II (Austrian)
