William-Adolphe Bouguereau: Dante And Virgil In Hell

Erotica // Friday, December 21, 2012
On this fine day marking the supposed end of the world, we bring you a bit of erotic art history. "Dante and Virgil in Hell," by French painter William-Adolphe Bouguereau, depicts the principle characters from Dante's Divine Comedy observing the eternal struggle between men condemned for their violence. When fire rains down from the sky and demonic beings run rampant, don't let this be you, at least remember to put your pants on before running out into the apocalypse.

Erotica // Friday, December 21, 2012
Pantyhose are those seductive,  sheer, close-fitting legwear that appeared in the 1960s and provided a convenient alternative to stockings.

Erotica // Thursday, December 20, 2012
"The idea behind this work is to collaborate with a non-artist, Bill Shambaugh, to combine the styles of two very different hands --one naive and one practiced-- within the same drawing.

JKB Fletcher is a working artist from the UK, living in Melbourne, Australia.
