Jan Frans DeBoever

Jan Frans De Boever (Ghent, Belgium, June 8, 1872 - May 23, 1949)

"Suddenly in about 1909 he modified his style radically, painting licentious women and prostitutes in morbid and bizarre settings. Skeletons, death and eroticism began to dominate his paintings. Semi-clothed women were depicted as servants of the devil, creating an atmosphere of evil. Man is shown as woman's toy, a languid object submitting himself to her slightest caprice."

Wonderful stuff, though I suspect anytime a someone starts drawing women as evil succubi who toy with men we are seeing the work of someone who was dumped.
