Triple P hasen't seen the film The Danish Girl (2015) which tells the story of Danish artist and illustrator Gerda Wegener (1885-1940) and her husband, the first sex change patient. We have been planning a piece on some of her delicious lesbian paintings for some time, however. The film, we gather, avoids the controversial subject of Wegener's own sexuality. Here we have a lovely nymph enjoying a satyr. Despite the satyr's predatory expression the nymph appears to be doing all the work here in a much more female dominant way than the usual depiction of such a couple.
The two pictures here are illustrations from the erotic book Les Délassements de l’Éros, published in 1925. Here a more contemporary lady is tickled by a faun. Both are really delightful watercolours.
More about Wegener, soon.
