The first true flowering of Satanism in erotic art came with the Belgian artist Felicien Rops (1833-1898). Rops commingled elements of death, prostitution and the Satanic in his work, particularly in his series Les Sataniques. These 80 images between them display the full range of Felicien Rops' darkest subject matter, revolving around his Baudelairean fusion of sex, death and Satan; they also run the gamut of the artistic techniques Rops employed and reveal the driving obsession and skill behind his work.
