The Voyeur Jean Morisot

It seems obligatory to call an artist a voyeur. Most artists are, it comes with the territory. Call it an occupational hazard if you please. Jean Morisot was a doctor with an immense artistic talent using the pseudonym Jean de Sauteval. Looking at his pictures we see an artist obsessed with voyeurism. It dominates most of the pictures we know and there are also a lot of forced penetrations going on in his works which may indicate that Dr. Morisot had a problem. Impotence seems likely and maybe he even had an uncontrollable urge to dominate as well. Through an intermediary perhaps, because one can almost touch the distance between him and his subjects.
