Franz von Bayros № 5
In 1911, the Munich police persecuted him because of his illustrations and forced him into exile from Germany. He drew about 2000 illustrations in all his life, for books such as Dante's 'Divina Commedia' and those by Hans Bartsch. His legacy is a wonderful collection of lovely, decadent erotic but elegant masterpieces, with a love for every smallest beautiful detail, rarely found elsewhere. Franz von Bayros died in Vienna on 3 April 1924.
