On this page you can download a digitized illustration of the famous French poet, art critic and  essayist  Charles Baudelaire  (1821.-1867.).

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.
