Suzanne Ballivet

Illustrated by Suzanne Ballivet (1904 -1985). Suzanne Ballivet’s life and origins remain something of a mystery. Other than the fact that she probably lived and worked in Paris from about 1930 to 1955, few, if any, biographical facts are available.
Although she illustrated several erotic books, Les Chansons de Bilitis (1943), Les Aventures du roi Pausole (1947), Gamiani (date unknown), La Venus aux Fourrures (1954), it is without doubt Initiation Amoureuse (1943) which remains her most popular body of work .
Ballivet is one of the few female artists known to have produced erotic work in the first half of this century.
