Welcome To The Curios

The Curios have been gathered from near and far. They may be common-as-muck or one-of-a-kind. They may be worth a pretty penny or a dime-a-dozen. They may be horrifying, captivating, loathsome, or scintillating.

Whatever the cause of their creation, hopefully they bring enjoyment to someone out there.


In the interests of pedantry...

I recently posted some selected scans from 'Moderne Enzyklopädie der Erotik', including a scan of Balthus' 'The Guitar Lesson'. Some days later, the fabulous La Contessa Tumblr posted a colour version of that painting, here, taken from a larger gallery, called 'Orazio Centaro's Art Images on the Web'.

In the colour version, you can clearly see that the original is from 1934, not 1954 as indicated in the Moderne Enzyklopädie on my blog.

Just goes to show you, you can't believe everything you read.
