"Dream with her dreaming"

Dream with her dreaming
Until her lust
Seems to her seeming
An act of trust!

From "Ars Amoris" by J.V. Cunningham

Reclining female nude, Franz von Lenbach, 1902

Just have to say how much I enjoy those Fine Art dirty pictures with the bland titles. "Reclining Female Nude," indeed. Recently saw an exhibition of similar line drawings with titles like "Woman in Chair," and "Two Women on Couch"...

Well, I suppose they spend all their creative energy on the execution--none left for discourse.

I agree that it's very cool to see these brought together on your blog. What wonderful variety.

I think this one looks like a sleepy, unlaced Edith Wharton -- a disconcerting image.

Oh my god, Michael--she does look like Edith, or one of her heroines. Trust you to tell me something funny that I'm not sure I wanted to know!
