Weirdness in a lady's bed


Mareridtscene (nightmare scene), by Ditlev Blunck, 1846.
The Nightmare, by John Henry Fuseli (Johann Heinrich Füssli), 1781.
Sleeping Venus with Cupido, by Godfried Schalcken, before 1685.
The Nightmare, by John Henry Fuseli (Johann Heinrich Füssli), 1790-91. A variation on the painting of 1781.
Danaë and the Shower of Gold, by Adolf Ulrik Wertmüller, 1787.
Title unknown, by Richard Tennant Cooper, circa first quarter of the twentieth century.
Though the title is unknown, going by the artist's other work, this is most likely a "lesson" on venereal disease.
La liseuse de romans (The reader of novels), by Antoine Wiertz, 1853.

  1. Weirdness indeed, and many of them verge on soft porn, which was probably the subtext anyhow. Thanks for these!
