John Dupret

From Spanking Art

John Dupret is an English born artist and collector of early erotic photography.

His artwork includes F/F spanking art with a vintage, almost Art Nouveau, touch, based on vintage photos. For example, this artwork is based on this photo.


John Dupret, as of 2012, is in his sixties. In 1973 he moved with his family to live in New Zealand and Australia for 21 years, where he exhibited his paintings in various prestigious locations. From 1994 to 1997 he lived in France, then he moved back to England where he lives in Worthing.


Dupret's fetish/erotic artwork was published in several magazines and books. In 1997 Erotic Print Soc published his book Sirens (ISBN 978-1904989295).

For over 25 years, John Dupret has collected a large archive of vintage erotic photography spanning the period 1850 – 1940. From this collection evolved the book Dark Sex (ISBN 978-1898998419) by Linda and John Dupret, which, like Sirens is out of print but still available from the author.
