On André Gide, the great 'Immoralist'.

Gide by Vallotton.

 "...over the years he had antagonised
- amongst others -
Catholics, Communists,
Italian fascists, Spanish falangists,
colonialists, homophobes
and xenophobes.

"By the same token
he occupied a position for literary
and political critics similar to that
of a village lamp-post for neigbourhood dogs."

how French artists and intellectuals survived the Nazi Occupation.
