I've discovered the painter Francois Octave Tassaert (1800-1874), a masterful, brilliant artist who was known for paintings of misery and sadness.
He also painted some seriously horny paintings, too.

(Next series of posts will be behind some CWs for mentions of suicide, death, and straight up thirst)

Tassaert, TW Suicide 

Exhibit 1: An Unfortunate Family, or Suicide: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Oct

Not graphic, just a mother and daughter peacefully succumbing. This is sad, but also beautiful in an eerie way? (I'm not an art critic, so I don't want to come off as insensitive.)

Two: here's The Deserted Woman: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Octave_T

She's collapsed with fatigue. What is she waiting for? WHO is she waiting for? I'm heartbroken just looking at her.

But then...there are others..!


Tassaert, TW THIRST 

The Jealous Cat: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Octave_T


(The cat always goes for the dude's ass, AMIRITE?)

And then there's my favorite, The Damned Woman: arthur.io/art/nicolas-francois

Damned as in going to Hell or damned as in, "That damned woman, always sitting on seraphim faces with her titties out..." Either way, she's living her best life. Leave her alone.

And there's one more that I just LOVE.

Tassaert, TW Dude nudity (Dudity?) 

Caring Lover: arthur.io/art/nicolas-francois

I think she's putting a condom on him, which is very nice of her.

(Also, I don't know if these are the same people in The Jealous Cat, but it looks like the same bed. Either way, dude -- watch out for the cat.)

Anyway, that concludes my mini tour of Tassaert. Lovely and talented painter, doesn't get enough attention. A+++ want to see in person.
