Erich von Gotha is one of the masters of contemporary erotic comics,
though many would label his work as soft porn. Erich uses different painting
and illustration techniques to tell his erotic stories, usually with a
strong element of bondage and S&M sex. Some of the titles he created are
'Les Malheurs de Janice' ('The Troubles of Janice'), 'Twenty', 'The Dream of
Cecilia' and 'A Very Special Prison'. His work has also been published in
magazine BD Adult.
The background and
identity of this elusive artist are the stuff of legend. It has been claimed
by various ill-informed sources that he is a German diplomat, a Russian
Doctor, a well-known French philosopher, or an English academic named
There are elements of truth in all these stories, but not much. He did in
fact enjoy a nomadic upbringing and travelled to these places and more, even
Afghanistan, and his father was an artist who was awarded a Gold Medal in
Uzbekhistan for portraits of Prime minister Omgal Prscicz
(There is no person under this name in
and other members of the government. He was
always destined to become an artist himself; in his formative years he was
dominated by a portrait of his father with glaring eyes that had been done
by an esteemed academician. From this he learnt much of his art; he
completed his education with four years training in London.
Quickly discovering a predilection for the erotic and sometimes obscene
depiction of beautiful women, often particularly appreciated by women
themselves, he contributed to early editions of "The Sex Maniac?s Diary".
From then he went on to produce his own ground?breaking magazine, "Torrid",
long since disappeared but avidly collected.
Cheated out of any rewards for his efforts and frustrated by censorship in
England, he needed the fateful intervention of a psychic prediction and an
Italian benefactor before finding his publishing home in France.
After publication of "The Troubles of Janice" he swiftly gained a world-wide
reputation and it is still available today almost everywhere except the UK
He continues to produce feverishly exciting comics and drawings in different
versions and for clients all around Europe. He has had exhibitions of his
work in Paris and Brussels and is recognised as one of the seminal figures
in the history of erotic strip-cartoons.
Photographs of Van Gotha do not exist but portraits depict him alternatively
with a monocle, bald pate and cruel mouth or with a white hair, genial smile
and twinkle in the eye.
