Gerda Wegener | Les Délassements D’Eros

Les Délassements D’Eros | Twelve Elegantly Erotic Pochoir Plates

This highly erotic masterpiece by Gerda Wegener is a set of aquarelle pochoir plates. Pochoir printing is the forerunner of what is known in street art as a stencil. The recreation of Eros, as the title can be translated, shows fairy like girls amusing themselves alone, together or with the help of a satyr. A cornucopia of lesbian sex scenes, executed in perfect Art Deco, by the Bohemian Icon of the lesbian and queer art scene of the 1920s. Signed with her trademark domino-mask symbol that she  used for her erotica.








Les Délassements D’Eros by Gerda Wegener, a set of twelve oval and circle aquarelle color plates in pochoir on (7 3/4 x 10 3/4 in) was released in Paris, 1925 in the Edition Erotopolis (A L’Enseigne du Faune).
