A clip from a new documentary about art during the Rococo period. Contains M/F, M/M, and F/M. There seems to be a continuity error because the first lady to get spanked bends over the knee of one of the men but in the close up she has her head on the other lady’s lap. See an HQ version here. (Don’t know if this works outside UK).
The use of actors to recreate scenes from 18th Century French art did not stretch to nudes unfortunately. When it came to the infamous painting of Louise O’Murphy by Francois Boucher (which used to be used as the header to this blog) the presenter, Waldemar Janusczak, did it himself! Fully clothed thankfully!
Don’t worry I won’t be using this as my next header!
