    This artwork https://www.boijmans.nl/en/collection/artworks/115896/l-execution-du-testament-du-marquis-de-sade

    shows a priest who has sex with a body without head and dismembered Hands. Is this really from Marquis de Sade? And does he want to show us all something, i think so :)



  • Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen answered

    Hi Schett, The work is made by Paul van der Eerden and probably should be seen as an artistic interpretation of De Sade's writings, in combination with current affairs. Kind regards, Els
