Dreams of Desire 10 (Sisters of the Immaculate Silk Stockings)

Clovis Trouille-Dialogue au Carmel  1944
Another painting from Trouille representing the dubious Sisters of the Immaculate Silk Stocking. This one has it all; lustrous drapes, cigarette smoking, a crucifix, a skull and moulded phallic candles.

    1. Thank you, the Catholic nations of Europe has a rich history of delighting in blasphemy which just doesn’t translate to Protestantism. This is very evident in Surrealism as a whole that was originally a French movement and had heavy back up from the Spanish. It reminds me of Bunuel’s comment ‘Thank God I’m an atheist’

      1. Ah, he was amazing. Just went to an exhibit of his scientific talents. Amazing. He wrote a letter to the king of Spain(I think) and outlined his many talents. It was fascinating.
