Paul-Emile Becate

Drypoint print by French illustrator & engraver Paul-Emile Becate, circa mid-1930s. This is one from a series of erotic prints illustrating (I believe) Paul Verlaines compilation of poetry, Les Amies. Beautiful stuff – I love the muted colors & intricate linework, and you’ll not find many more elegant depictions of explicit sex.
