Asker lilyliqueur: What really blows my mind is the way that he didn't see women as a sexual object. I feel, personally, that despite his depiction of women being "femme fatales", he really saw them as more than a "woman". Jiri Mucha said "A woman, for him, was not a body, but beauty incorporated in matter and acting through matter. That is why all his female figures, however solid, are not really of this world. They are symbols, unattainable dreams." Idealized, almost as goddesses.
