Goddess Diana
Goddess Diana

This Goddess Diana, the hunter, accompanied my adolescence. I have found her in a bonded 1907 volume of the Czech-language magazine Česká Myslivost (Czech Hunting) treasured by my father. It was about the one and only picture of a naked ladies' breast in the house. It is also a nice example of the central-European ideal of female beauty during the last years of Austrian Empire.

The magazine does not state the name of the artist.
Which is a pity since the drawing is well done.
