Little is known about M. del Giglio, except that he created art for various spanking novels in the early 1900s. Below are his illustrations from the 1908 novel Le Fouet Conjugal (The Conjugal Whip) by Aimé Van Rod.
Le Fouet Conjugal was republished in 1930 with illustrations by Georges Topfer.
“Even for the period, the style is antique, observing mid-Victorian conventions both artistic and erotic, and making use of environments and costumes consonant with that period. (This may be no more than a reflection of the likely tastes of the original clientele.)” – The Art of Discipline: A Pictorial History of the Smacked Bottom
