Gaston Goor (1902-1977)
The French painter and illustrator Gaston Goor was a highly accomplished graphic artist whose works were controversial for his often openly homosexual themes.
He was active as a book illustrator, notably for the gay writer and diplomat Roger Peyrefitte, who was one of his principal patrons.
Gaston Goor is listed in the Benezit Dictionary of Artists which provides an extensive list of his illustrated books including “Le Voyage de Shakespeare,” by Leon Daudet, Le Jardin des Letters by Jacques Bainvilles Motherland and Contes Philosophiques by Charles Maurras.
