François Berthoud is recognized as one of the most original illustrators of his time, known for erotica and romantic fashion illustration. His painstakingly produced, meticulously arranged linocuts and his expressive drip paintings have graced Vogue, Numéro, Visionaire, and Interview, among others. He has also created images for such leading brands as Yves Saint Laurent, Bulgari, Chanel, Givenchy, Sonia Rykiel, and Prada. Emerging in the 1980s, Berthoud has a distinct style that fuses fashion and erotica and was championed by the legendary Italian fashion editor Anna Piaggi.
