Pierre Molinier was a French Surrealist painter and photographer best known for his erotic sadomasochistic imagery. Born on April 13, 1900 in Agen, France, Molinier began to explore the eroticism and fetishistic influences that would characterize his later work. In 1955, he developed a correspondence with the Surrealist André Breton, who initially encouraged Molinier’s work. In 1965, the artist began to make autoerotic self-portraits and photomontages in his Bordeaux apartment, which he referred to as his boudoir. These photographs feature Molinier and occasionally other models dressed in women’s lingerie and engaged in erotic and sadomasochistic acts.
