This is the first heavily illustrated biography of the Marquis De Sade including both contemporary material (such as illustrations from first edition of Sade’s writing) and later works by artists who captured his spirit or were directly inspired by him, from Aubrey Beardsley to Man Ray to Allen Jones. It is also the first biography of Sade to make use of the full range of documentary materials, including notebooks he kept in the Charenton madhouse.
