In 1896, Louÿs published his first novel, Aphrodite--Ancient Manners, a depiction of courtesan life in Alexandria. It is considered a mixture of both literary excess and refinement, and, numbering at 350,000 copies, was the best selling work by any living French author in his day. But enough said of the telluric parameters of select Hirschfeld Galleries' offerings which take on a life of their own and speak so very loudly for themselves.

La Femme et le pantin (The Woman and the Puppet) is a 1898 novel by Pierre Louÿs. During the carnival in Seville, the Frenchman André Stévenol meets and falls under the spell of Conception 'Concita' Perez, a young Andalusian woman. His friend, don Mateo Diaz warns him off by describing his own history with the woman a history of being repeatedly attracted and then rebuffed by her. Pierre Louÿs was a French poet and writer, most renowned for lesbian and classical themes in some of his writings. He is known as a writer who sought to "express pagan sensuality with stylistic perfection." He was made first a Chevalier and then an Officer of the Légion d'honneur for his contributions to French literature. Clara Tice (22 May 1888 2 February 1973) was an American avant-garde illustrator and artist, who spent most of her life in New York City, United States. Because of her provocative art and public appearances, she was seen as representative of bohemian Greenwich Village and thus known as "The Queen of Greenwich Village."
