Hymne d'Amour by Auguste Levêque.

We have featured a painting of a couple by Belgian artist Auguste Levêque (1866-1921), previously.  Painted in 1901 this large oil (1.78 x 2.33 m) is remarkably frank for the period.  Like the previous painting we posted there is something rather post-coital about it.  It was exhibited in the Triennial Exhibition in Brussels in 1903.

At last after a dismal and cold three months, it is starting to feel like summer is on the way here and we had 77 degrees yesterday. So we thought this would be a good theme for the next few weeks: Al fresco lovemaking.  More outdoor sex soon!
