Dying Amazon

Dying Amazon (1905) by the German painter Franz von Stuck (1863-1928). A great Art Nouveau painting, more ornament and color than realistic image. Nevertheless a very erotic piece of art.

Harem Bather

After the Bath (1889) by the French painter Pierre-Louis Bouchard (1831-1889). In my humble opinion one of the hottest odalisques of the 19th century.

The famous Greek poetess Sappho short before her death-leap from the white cliff. A dark erotic painting by the French artist Charles-August Mengin (1853-1933), who was a student of Alexandre Cabanel.
