XAVIER SAINT-JUSTH (French / active 1960s-80s)

Little is known about Xavier Saint-Justh, who is most remembered for the powerful yet restrained eroticism of his lithographs to illustrate Eugénie de Franval by the Marquis de Sade. In his Livres Illustrés Modernes, Luc Monod states that Xavier Saint-Justh is simply a pseudonym for the artist Gaston de Saint-Croix. However, this seems uncertain, and other sources give Xavier Saint-Justh as a pseudonym for the French artist of Hungarian origins Georges Neczpál (dates unknown). Georges Neczpál provided illustrations for leading magazines in the 1950s and 60s, and in the 1960s also illustrated several children's books under the slightly different pseudonym Xavier Saint-Just (no final "h").
