Produced during the 1970's & 1980's, this series of linocuts by Roland Topor consists on a variation on sex and death. The hardness of the line gives the illustrations an apparent solemnity softened by their amusing titles.
Roland Topor (1938-1997) is a French drawer, painter, designer, playwright and novelist who also worked for cinema and television. He founded in 1962 the Panic Movement, along with Fernando Arrabal and Alexandro Jodorowsky.
