When Félicien Rops went to live in Paris at the age of 41 he was already regarded as the best paid illustrator of the city. The publication of his satirical lithographs in Belgium has paved the way to the great breakthrough. When he was also asked to decorate the frontispiece for the book ‘Epaves’ by Baudelaire, his name had been made. Rops was an excellent observer and painted marine paintings and landscapes brimful of atmospheres. Nevertheless, the public most loved - and still does - his ironic, caricatural and sometimes scabrous etches, lithographs and gravures. Proof of this is the increasing success of the Museum Félicien Rops in Namur, which was recently completely renovated and beautifully extended. This new, richly illustrated museum guide has been published as a result of the reopening of the museum. In the guide curator Bernadette Bonnier pauses at the many highlights of the different collections. Next to the complete museum track the reader also gets the biography of Rops.
