Hans Bellmer was a key figure in the Surealist movment made over a hundred photos of several dolls with the assistance of his brother and his sister in-law made in the early 1930s in part as a protest against Germany’s Nazi regime, and in part out of an expression of erotic feelings…
” Entirely feminine in its depicted materials and iconography”, the art of Bellmer “is nevertheless not about women, woman, or a woman, not even about the historical construction of femininity, although such readings are possible. It is instead about masculine anxieties inspired by the female sex and its perceived lack ” notes Sue Taylor in her remarkable study: ” Hans Bellmer, the anatomy of anxiety ” (2000).
