    Image dimensions: 15 x 11.5 cm.

    Boudoir is a black and white linocut on ivory-colored paper, realized in 1945 by the Italian satiric master Mino Maccari (1898-1989).

    Hand-signed with the pseudonym "Jean Barbe" and numbered in pencil and in Arabic numerals on the lower margin. Edition of 300 prints.

    From the collection On s'amuse: 16 gravures en bois par Jean Barbe realized by the Italian illustrator and published by Documento, Rome.

    This original print, representing the erotic dream of a woman in full ecstasy and in her boudoir with all the guests of the house, is in excellent conditions, realized with a wise touch and expert artistic skills. A white cardboard passepartout is included (49 x 34 cm).

    It is wonderful to notice how the full hatching of the background behind the main figure of the female nude hides and at the same time captures the attention of the fare figures, people dedicated to pleasures as the central main woman. And it is particular to observe that only the female figures are detailed, men are hidden by the hatchings, this is important to understand that this artwork as all the plates of " On s'amuse" was for a masculine public.

    In 1945, Mino Maccari published a folder containing 16 linoleums with a strongly erotic subject matter, titled On s' amuse!. Because of the scandalous subject for the time, he signed with the pseudonym of Jean Barbe. The circulation is of 300 copies, 40 "before letter", numbered in Roman numerals, hand-painted by Maccari himself and signed by him "J.B."
