Albert-Joseph Pénot was a French painter active from the late 1800’s to the late 1920’s, who was primarily known for female nudes.

Today, he is more specifically recognised for a subset of paintings portraying women in darker, more macabre themes.

His work is absolutely stunning. Definitely a favourite of mine and well-worth reading up about. Horrendously underrated, too (as all the best things tend to be!)
