Once started as a stylist, painter and restaurateur of mannequins, Clovis Trouille (October 24, 1889 – September 24, 1975) evolved into a protopunk painter. Salvador Dali himself called him a surrealist, but Trouille reluctantly took over that label.
WWI ruined him so much that he became deeply disdained for the military and the Church. This is reflected in his work, in which he regularly depicted nuns, cardinals and Jesus in psychedelic orgies.
Trouille eschewed black and white in favor of a very ostentatious color palette, which he used to bring to life his branded buttocks, sex-crazed movie monsters and hypocritical officials.
Here are some examples of his work:
