Heinrich Kley

Here's a nice piece of pen and ink work by Heinrich Kley.
It was sold on eBay in January 2007 and I still wish I had bought it. But if my memory serves me right it went for much more than I could afford at the time.
Still, these eBay images are better than nothing. Enjoy!

I have absolutely no idea about what's going on in this drawing, but that only adds to the beauty of Kleys work.  Much of his work will make you think twice before you can figure out what's going on. If you can at all. Still those lines are so full of life you just can't stop beeing fascinated by them.

Hmm... Thinking twice, those antlers and womans makes me think that the guy is having something dirty on his mind ...

Do you suppose the guy is stewing over being cuckolded? That what the horns used to mean...the woman in them might be his wife.

On the other hand, what of the little naked women? Possibility 1: he's horny as well as wearing horns, and is considering following his wife's lead. Possibility 2: his wife left him for another woman.

Interesting theories. :)
And I think you might be right.
