Reclining Nudes, Masturbating Girls

Reclining Nudes, Girls in Fine Art, Jilling Off

The amazing online collection of the Met ( The Metropolitan Museum of Art), a cornucopia of art of all times, is not only a feast for the eyes. It also offers a sublime direction how to name the best things in life the most discreet way. A fine example are some of the reclining nudes and woman. What sounds like an after-work nap may indeed be an arousing image of a girl masturbating or two woman hugging nude in bed. Here we have some fine examples of such delicious erotica by Austrian artists Gustav Klimt and Egon Schiele, two of the most important artists from the beginning of the last century.

The next time your friendly neighborhood art historian says he/she needs to recline, show a knowing smile.

All images are part of the Bequest of Scofield Thayer, 1982.  Scofield Thayer (1889–1982), the editor of the avant-garde journal the Dial, went in the early Twenties to Vienna, where he was analyzed by Sigmund Freud. From there he embarked on an art-buying spree throughout the capitals of Europe, acquiring (among many other things) a number of highly erotic works on paper by Gustav Klimt, Egon Schiele, and Pablo Picasso. By now these works have taken their place as erotic masterpieces, collected with remarkable foresight and vision.
