kudos to toulouse! he gave us vivid images to counteract the puritanical western culture's idiotic views of 'risque'.

art appreciation was only given the stamp of approval it seemed if published in high fluting magazines like 'the new yorker' which segued into the counter-culture of "knock-off cartoonish images" via playboy, penthouse, etc. :)
