In episode 7 I talk to Dwid Hellion about Félicien Rops, a painter, illustrator, caricaturist and a prolific and innovative print maker from Namur, Belgium. He was associated with Symbolism and the Parisian Fin-de Siècle. He provided frontispieces and illustrations for Charles Baudelaire, Théophile Gautier, Stéphane Mallarmé, Joséphin Péladan, Paul Verlaine, Voltaire, and many others. Rops is recognized as a pioneer of Belgian comics.
