"Tears with ecstasy"

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



And others again, whose necks in scapulars delight,

Who hide a whip beneath their garments secretly,

Commingling, in the sombre wood and lonesome night,

The foam of torments and of tears with ecstasy.
