The body of work of this fellow Félicien Rops defies logical description, except to say it is a fever dream mixture of sex and death and religious satire. This work, The Temptation of Saint Anthony is from 1878, and interestingly the medium was colored pencils on paper, which to me seems rare for that time.

This image is again a find from the midst of searching my morgue for a project. Not sure where to refile it.
