Erotica Art – Gustav Klimt’s “Frau bei Selbstbefriedigungder “

| June 11, 2013

The legendary Gustav Klimt produced this great image sometime in 1916 or 1917, just a year or two before his death. Entitled “Frau bei der Selbstbefriedigungder” (essentially, “Woman Self-Pleasuring”) and IMO quite remarkable for its loveliness while simultaneously being quite frank about what’s going on here.

Yet another image from a Victorian “erotic alphabet” – this one appropriately enough the letter X. Probably dates around the 1880s, give or take a decade.

Martin Van Maele & Marcel Vertes – Antique Erotic Prints for Sale

Hey all, just thought I’d do a quick post on a pair of eBay auctions I’ve currently got up. Selling two series of excellent antique erotic etchings: Martin van Maele’s De Sceleribus et Criminibus (circa 1908) and Marcel Vertes’ Le Pays a Mon Gout (1921).

The Classic Erotic Art of Felicien Rops – Black Mass

| January 24, 2012

Macabre yet sensual pencil & watercolor by the acclaimed Decadent artist Felicien Rops. Originally from Belgium, he worked in both Brussels & Paris during the 1800s, producing a fine array of erotic art with a leaning toward the dark end of the spectrum (including a liberal dose of Satanic imagery).

Francois Boucher – Porn For The Dauphin

| January 14, 2012

A very fine piece of classic erotic art, by the renowned painter Francois Boucher. Part of a series entitled Grivoiserie (“saucy story”), it was commissioned in the 1740s as sex education for the current Dauphin of France – the future King Louis XVI.

This one features a discreet handjob given by a lusty fille to her lover whilst on a pastoral outing.

Joie d’Hiver – Le Dessert

| December 18, 2011

This vintage erotic illustration is courtesy of an unknown French artist from the early 1900s, working under the pseudonym Joie d’Hiver (“Joy Of Winter”). From a series of explicit pencil & watercolor pieces called Parisian Sketches.

The one below is entitled Le Dessert, and safe to say it’s getting served to both…

Vintage Erotic Art – Marcello Dudovich

| December 12, 2011

This painting is part of an erotic series by the famous Italian artist & illustrator Marcello Dudovich. He’s best known for his superb early 1900s posters advertising Martini & Rossi (still quite popular today), Campari, Bugatti, Pirelli Tires, & many more companies. However, Dudovich’s lesser known works include some highly explicit erotic art like the one below. Quite a bit more risqué than the usually veiled eroticism of Art Nouveau, but still keeping some of its essence – bold, colorful, playful, bawdy…

More of Marcello Dudovich’s erotic artwork can be found in the collection at Delta of Venus Vintage Erotica.
