Resource/art: 18th/19th century e-ro-ti-ca

Let’s not sugarcoat it: the following pictures are the 18th/early 19th century equivalent to the magazines your brother used to hide from your parents under the bed. Quick entertainment for the masses, but that’s part of our culture, too. By now it’s art, and those drawings are fun!

Unfortunately, I don’t know the name of the artists, but the drawings were made between 1790 and 1815.

Acrobatics
I’m in awe of the acrobatic abilities of this couple… and the patience of the donkey.

Have fun!
