Oh Those Victorians
I'm enjoying Jeremy Paxman's exploration of Victorian art and how it reflected, exaggerated and downright misrepresented the age. I was especially intrigued last night by the story of Punch cartoonist and respectably married man Linley Sambourne, whose excuse for taking photographs such as this on the left was that he really needed to see a naked figure to work out how to draw it properly.
It was nothing to do with being a kinky perve at all!
