Charles Baudelaire was a forerunner and founder of modernism. His collection of poems "The Flowers of Evil" is considered the most lyrical work of the 19th century. Although Baudelaire's contemporaries thought him only a bohemian and a poetic rake, he is considered one of the greatest poets of our time. 
 
In today's popular culture Baudelaire is also known for his quotes. Here are some of them: 
- Remembering is only a new form of suffering.
- The worst thing in love is that you can not manage anything without a counterpart.
- The greatest trick the devil ever played was convincing the world that he does not exist.
- Work is not as boring as leisure.
- Strangeness is a necessary ingredient in beauty.
 
The illustration has been made based on a picture in an old magazine featuring a woodcut by Félix Vallotton. This famous French artist contributed greatly to the development of  modern woodcut.
