Secrets of the harem by Leone Frollo

Secrets of the Harem (1985)

Here is another harem scene this time by Italian comic book artist Leone Frollo (1931-).  Born in Venice he was seventeen when his first work, a western, was published.  He worked for Fleetway magazines in London from 1958 until 1968.  His erotic work was largely done from around 1970 until the nineties. 

Flappers (1985)

Much of his erotic work has a nice period feel to it and he works largely in watercolour and pastels which gives a pale delicacy to his pictures.

In fact they are so delicate that when we first saw them we thought the artist must be a woman.

His most recent comic, Mona Street, was set in the first decade of the Twentieth Century giving him full reign for lots of satin and stockings.

Finally, we have a lone young lady who nicely mixes a touch of the harem with something more Western.  Maybe she is thinking about what the two ladies at the top of the post are up to!
