FRANZ von BAYROS
The Marquis Franz Von Bayros (1866-1924), the Austrian artist, painter and illustrator, was best known for his controversial Tales at the Dressing Table, a book considered so dangerous to the morality of the time that Von Bayros was arrested and forced into exile. He was obliged to move from one European capital to another as each outrageous new work was banned by the authorities. Von Bayros's art is striking in its stark eroticism and wry wit and he is noted for his lurid illustrations of such classic forbidden books as Boccaccio's Decameron.
CFM is very pleased to be able to offer high quality examples of his work, including prints from the infamous Tales at the Dressing Table from a limited edition portfolio published in 1908.
