Achille Deveria Takes Us on an Erotic Tour Around the World

This series of 12 lithographs (1843) depicting intimate couples in various countries has been given several titles overtime, such as Autour du monde (Around the World) and Types de différents pays (People in Different Countries). The set has been attributed to the French painter Achille Devéria (1800-1857) because of its characteristic style.

Lesbian Theme

Devéria clearly had a fascination with Italy (or at least what would eventually become Italy in the 1860s) by including Venice (Fig.11) and Naples (Fig.4). Striking is the plate depicting a lesbian rendezvous with the masturbating harem leader behind the curtain which Devéria saved for the Muslim scene in Fig.6.
