This oil painting series draws on Baudelaire's poem "The Condemned Women" from Baudelaire's Flowers of Evil



Hippolyta, sister! Please turn your face to me,
You, my heart and soul, my all, half of my own self,

Turn toward me your eyes brimming with azure and stars!
For one of those bewitching looks, O divine balm,
I will lift the veil of the more subtle pleasures
And lull you to sleep in an endless dream!"
