What is this all about? I came across it this morning at the first-class Old Erotic Art and find it fascinating - in a disturbing way. Both the man and woman are grotesque, but I find the way her elegant outfit bares breasts and bottom really rather arousing.And what's the thing with the mirror? And why are they in what looks to be the open countryside? Not much chance to do any writing at the moment with Christmas eating all my time, but I'm going to spend some time trying to construct a narrative around this picture. In the meantime, if anybody can tell me who painted it and when I'd be grateful.
