Feminine Delights

Gerda Wegener (1886-1940) was a Danish illustrator and painter who is best known for her erotica which often depicted sex between women. When one looks beyond the explicit sexual content one can see a significant body of work that focuses on other aspects of feminine pleasure -  music, dance, fashion, romance, and companionship. 

Gerda and her husband Einar Wegener (also an artist) were the subject of a recent motion picture The Danish Girl (2015). Alicia Amanda Vikander, who portrayed Gerda, won the Academy award for Best Supporting Actress.  

(The explicit images start near the end of the post.)

Wow! This went from lovely, to hot, to whoah there (the rapey one with the devil??), to lovely again :)

If I decide to put up a profile on a dating site again, I'll just link to one of those with the women chilling and having a good time :D

I interpreted that picture as a bdsm play scene at a costume party but maybe it was something darker. I especially liked the picture towards the middle with the woman removing a concerned mask to reveal a happy face underneath. Often cheerful people are accused of being fake, so it's nice to see an inversion of the trope.

The mask removal picture stood out for me as well. At first I thought it might have been about her husband revealing his inner feminine self, his true self, and finding joy in that. I like your take about a more general meaning. After reading your comment I noticed the jar of skin cream and the older appearance of the mask and think it could also be some kind of comment about beauty products and advertising.
