Kiyozumi Yamashita is  a Japanese artist who formerly studied printmaking at Dusseldorf and has lived in France and Italy. Yamashita developed a fantasy world, reminiscent of that of Hans Bellmer,  through copper engraving and the erotic texts and poems of Andre Pieyre Mandiargues. The aquatints are of astonishing facility and dexterity.  . (Complete Works of Kiyozumi Yamashita: Catalogue Raisonne: Colour Etchings, 1969-2007.)
