Harem Scene by Eugene Reunier

This drawing from the nineteen twenties is by Eugene Reunier whose French-sounding name was actually a pseudonym for the German artist Carl Breuer-Courth (1884-1960).

Reunier produced a lot of charming erotic works in the twenties some of them with fantastical elements and we will look at these another time.  Reunier also worked as a photographer towards the end of the twenties.

His harem is packed with enticing ladies of disparate body shapes largely piled up together in an Ingres type heap.  We like the girl on the left tickling her master into action with a peacock feather!
