Last week I posted the well known black and white version of this picture in a discussion about spankings in Dutch culture (see comments to this post). I said the 1976 cover from Panorama magazine was a favourite of mine and Harry responded by sending me an excellent quality scan in full colour (click to enlarge).
I like it even more now! 🙂
Harry had a few interesting comments to add:
I thought you’d like to see it in color. I don’t usually care for totally nude girls being spanked, but this is a favorite because (a) the nude daughter and clothed father contrast is iconic of the generation gap at the time, and (b) the girl’s pose and wide-eyed open-mouthed ‘Oh no, I’m being spanked’ expression really sells the shot.
I believe some European countries celebrate Father’s Day on a different date but Gelukkige Vaderdag to you all anyway.
