ERATO the drawings of Mihaly Zichy

Shota Rustaveli's "The Knight in the Tiger's Skin" artist, hungarian Mihaly Zichy, was very famous-or rather, infamous-for his series of erotic drawings. The original works were born at the court of Czar Nikolas the Second in 1898-1899. They were first published in album form in 1911 in Leipzig. Entitled LIEBE, the book appeared as a private edition.
