Marcel Vertes (1895-1961) was a Hungarian artist, illustrator & costume designer, probably best known for his stylish & lively murals adorning the walls of NYC’s Carlyle Hotel. He also won two well-deserved Oscars, with Elsa Schiaparalli, for his work on 1952´s Moulin Rouge (for Art Direction and Costume Design). Le Pays a Mon Gout reflects his whimsical style, but with decidedly erotic themes.
This vintage erotic illustration is courtesy of an unknown French artist
from the early 1900s, working under the pseudonym Joie d’Hiver (“Joy Of
Winter”). From a series of explicit pencil & watercolor pieces
called Parisian Sketches. Source of this information: Nude-o-Rama
