Hans Bellmer was a German artist who is best known for the life sized female dolls which he created in the 1930’s. He was part of the surrealist movement and in conjunction to sculpture he was also a painter and photographer. The themes used in his works are bodily and predominantly female.
I was first became interested in his work when I saw the semi erotic sketches he created throughout his career. I find the shapes and lines that he expresses through these sketches mesmerising.
This sketch is titled Sans titre, Ohn titel, and was created in 1964.
