Hans Bellmer was born in 1902 in Poland and died in 1975.
In his œuvre, one can find object-sculptures, photographs, paintings and drawings, most of them full of erotic variations on the female body. In the 30’s Bellmer began to construct his life sized female dolls, with mutated forms, unconventional poses and filled with provocative eroticism.
During the Nazi regime he fled from Germany to Paris, where he met other Surrealists artists that appreciated his ‘dolls’ as an ideal Surrealist object because of its conjunction of desire and revolt.
