Peter Johann Nepomuk Geiger
Born: January 1805 in Vienna, Austria
Died: October 1880 (aged 75)
Geiger wanted originally to follow the family tradition and become a sculptor, but drawing and painting were his natural element. Until 1848, he carried out numerous illustrations of historical works and poetry, but also made oil paintings for the Austrian Royal Family.
Returning from a journey to the Orient with Prince Ferdinand Maximilian Joseph in 1850, he entered a particularly creative period. In 1853, he became Professor of the Viennese Academy of Art. For the Royal Family, he made many works including illustrations of Goethe, Friedrich Schiller, and William Shakespeare. He also illustrated oriental life.
His erotic drawings are particularly remembered, though it is unlikely that they were the typical work of a court painter.
So why have we posted Geiger’s work as a slideshow on our website?
We strive to be a mature, classy, fun, sexy and sensual group. The human experience of sexuality is captured in an erotic fashion by his drawings. They reflect the passion our members have for life and their our sexual desire.
