François-Rupert Carabin erotic walnut bookcase goes on show

An extraordinary erotic bookcase has been lent for display outside Paris for the first time, in an exhibition on French Belle Époque prints at Amsterdam’s Van Gogh Museum. Designed by François-Rupert Carabin, it is surmounted by three female nudes modelled from prostitutes recruited at Montmartre brothels.
