Erotica

The Vision of Faust

December 18, 2013
Luis Ricardo Falero's 1878 painting "The Vision of Faust" is perfect for the erotica department with the coming of Halloween. The enormous painting depicts a scene from Goethe's "Faust" in which Mephistopholes takes Faust to a mountain to witness a Witch's Sabbath. The women who attend these sabbath's are traditionally "skyclad," a ritual nudity practiced by pagans or witches.
