Hans Bellmer 1936. I studied this guy in a college course called Art Sex and Violence. He stated that had he not made art of pubescent girls, he'd have resorted to "sexual murder." Very creepy stuff!

In Hans Bellmer's c.1936 Surrealist work 'The Doll', the female form is malleable and objectified in Bellmer's hands as a doll-maker and photographer, exposing this dismembered, bulbous form with chiaroscuro lighting and a low angle. In effect, he casts fetishist, erotic tones on the child's plaything (traditionally asexual) and turns the viewer into disconcerting voyeur, even more uncanny with the pastel hand-coloured background.
