Georges Topfer and Eric Galton, ‘Les Malheurs de Colette’ Spanking Illustrations

Georges Topfer illustrations from the 1928 novel Les Malheurs de Colette (The Misfortunes of Colette) by Aimé Van Rod, which was first published in 1914. The cover illustration directly below was done by the artist Martin van Maële.

“Supple, biting, the three branches like three snakes entwined themselves with the plump flesh, which quivered. The loins of the castigated hollowed out, the head threw back, the convulsed features of the face expressed a nameless suffering and from the throbbing throat welled cries of distress and mad pain. Ruthless, as she had said, Mrs. Sharp, with furrowed brows, tight lips, bent over Colette, whipped her unhurriedly, forcefully, aiming and reaching for the plump tops of her rump.” – Excerpt from Les Malheurs de Colette

In 1930 the novel was translated to English under the title The Misfortunes of Colette, which features 8 illustrations by Eric Galton. Below you can see how Galton took inspiration from Topfer’s illustrations with the side-by-side comparisons.

  1. Thank you for the translation for one scene from the book. This one differs in that the recipient of the spanking is not desiring the spanking. The art is quite wonderful to look at.
