Biography   Felicien Rops


ELICIEN ROPS (Belgian / 1833-1898)

Felicien Joseph Victor Rops was born in Namur in Belgium. Félicien (Fély, to his intimates) was a largely self-taught artist, though he benefited from the advice of Gustave Courbet, whom he met in 1861, when Courbet was in Belgium.

Félicien Rops was first influenced by the Flemish school, and then by the French realists, including Courbet, Millet, Degas and Manet. But his attraction to a world of decadent sensuality led Rops naturally to Symbolism*, in which movement he was a major figure.

His many nudes treat female sexuality with a kind of fascinated repulsion, typical of Symbolist writers such as Baudelaire and Huysmans, who was one of the few to really appreciate Rops' genius. Displaying 750 of 1178 characters.
