This chapter describes the pictures and other pictorial art that can be found in the wall of Dr. Faustroll, the protagonist in Alfred Jarry's Gestes et Opinions du docteur Faustroll, pataphysicien. These include Henri de Toulouse–Lautrec's painting Jane Avril, Pierre Bonnard's La Revue Blanche, and Aubrey Beardsley's portrait of Dr. Faustroll. It analyses the relevance of this pictorial art for Jarry and suggests that there is a possibility that they can also be found in Jarry's own home.
