We have added the title Erotische Spiele (Erotic Games) to this portfolio of typical Godal drawings from the early 1920s – a happy medley of straight, gay and lesbian encounters no doubt put into a folder by a satisfied collector. As with Das Lusthaus der Knaben Godal skilfully uses a limited range of colour washes to highlight his drawings, which were probably made very quickly between cartoon commissions and his more detailed etchings for Revolution.

We are very grateful to Hans-Jürgen Döpp for these images; Hans-Jürgen, the compiler of many books on erotic art, curates the Venusberg online gallery and bookshop which you can find here.
