QUEEN VICTORIA GIVES A TASTEFUL NUDE TO HER HUSBAND ALBERT ON THE OCCASION OF HIS BIRTHDAY

Victoria seems to have given Albert naked art on most of his birthdays; all these limbs and draperies are copied from nymphs and satyrs in the royal collections. The Victorians get a bad rap for prudery but Victoria was about as prudish as 1990s country music (ie very judgmental but also apparently obsessed with married sex). Gouache and cut paper on paper, 11 x 30″.
