Le Museum Felicien Rops: Guide

WAS £18.99 £13.29

Product description

Felicien Rops (1833-1898) led an existence and creative activity guided by his passions, audacities and torments. He moved to Paris at the age of 41, and was considered to be the best-paid illustrator in the city. All his artwork denounces the bourgeois hypocrisy, while at the same time transgressing the interests of his epoch, by celebrating eroticism, women, desire, the macabre and adventure. Rops was an excellent observer and painted attractive sea and landscapes, but especially his ironic, caricatural and sometimes indecent lithos and engravings were and still are very much appreciated by the public. This is proven by the success of the Felicien Rops Museum in Namur. Established since 1987 in a 19th Century bourgeois house in the heart of old Namur, today the Rops Museum houses over 3,000 of the artist's works, of which almost 300 are presented in the optimal conditions of preservation and security. This book peers over Rops' master works, approaching the different stages of his life and phases of creation. This guide is a perfect introduction to the life and works of Felicien

Oxfam Bookshop Hertford

Oxfam is the UK's largest second hand bookseller, but it doesn't stop there. We sell a great range of donated music as well. Whether it's vintage LPs or the latest modern fiction you want, we're well worth a look! We also offer a range of greetings cards for birthday and other occasions. Call us to find out more.

Could you help us by collecting donations from donors homes? Our shop receives many offers of generous donations that we have to turn down as we do not have volunteers able to collect. We would ask you to collect in your own car, at your convenience and reimburse your petrol costs. It might be a couple of times a month and would make a really big difference to our ability to make money.
