William Ablett (1877 - 1937)
William Ablett was born in London but lived for most of his life in Paris, where he died in 1937. He had a portrait in an exhibition of the Royal Portrait Institute in 1913, but found a more lucrative vein as a leading artist in "boudoir" painting and print making. "Boudoir" images were the soft core ancestors of pin-ups and centerfold photographs.
