Ask Morgana 119: Herric

herric6

Chéri Hérouard (1881-1961) drew and coloured the frivolous covers and illustrations in the magazine La Vie Parisienne, such as the depiction above of nature waking up after her winter sleep. Under the nom de brosse of ‘Herric’ he created more deliberately erotic illustrations for more pornographic publications, and for a French translation of the Kama Sutra. It’s all very ‘period’, but delightful.

I shall be taking a few days’ break, followers, but I will be back with you very shortly to resume this series. There are plenty more artists to come!
