Ask Morgana 140: Mihály Zichy

I know very little about Mihály Zichy (1827-1906), except that the surname Zichy belongs to a family of Magyar aristocrats. I do know that he was a prolific producer of erotic illustrations, many of which probably featured himself as one of the participants. His draughtsmanship was very good, as shown by the selection of drawings of female nudes I have included below. I like them very much. I am not quite as convinced about his paintings.
