Jean-Léon Gérôme was a French born artist, whose better known works demonstrate an ongoing fascination with painting and sculpting Oriental and romanticised Ancient History scenes. Gérôme’s interest in Oriental painting stemmed from an initial visit to Egypt in 1856, and continued throughout his career. In particular the artist had a fascination with the life of the women of the Harem.
Thanks to Julie of @MPBjulie for the ArtTwist#5 prompt by Fragonard – The Swing. Cammies @cammiesonthefloor and Molly from @Mollysdailykiss both contributed fabulous works which interpreted the concept in unique and engaging ways. It was also Molly’s first time playing ArtTwist and I was delighted to see her taking part given how many other things she has going.
I was happy with the studio shots not the least because I could drop my knickers to half mast without worrying about entertaining the neighbourhood…
Since I had a dinner engagement with CM tonight his helpful bit of advice to me earlier in the day once he knew what I was up to, was:
“If you wish to get arrested do it early, Saturday night is their busy night…”
Chivalry is not dead – lol!
This months prompt “Susanna”, suggested by the fabulous May Moore from @more_matters and SexMatters drew five entries. Given that kinky folk were highly preoccupied with #Eroticon2018, and the #SmutMarathon I think this was a very respectable (!) turnout.
…this “frivolous” work… is packed with symbolic detail, including not only the saucy woman on the swing but two men one behind pulling the swing with ropes, the other below getting an eyeful up her voluminous skirts. From the expression on her face, I’m fairly sure she knows he’s down there. Apparently the older chap at the back is unaware. #ArtTwist5
A perfect day for our river photoshoot, conducted to reflect the theme of Susanna and the Elders for #ArtTwist4. There were no Elders in sight, but an elderly couple and their dogs, plus a couple on a motorbike arrived and left in the early stages of the shoot, before any clothing was shed.
Claret by May More from Ifsexmatters and @more_matters this is an exquisite, layered image that captures Danaë with skill and imagination. The central figure is surrounded by a swirling claret cloud that suggests the interaction between the woman and the God along with the swirl of her emotion.
