نقاشی اروتیک دوره قاجار - حراج بونامز
This artwork seems to belong to Qajar period. Love making scenes were usually veiled in the paintings of Safavid Period. Such erotic scenes were perhaps adopted by Iranian artists from Indian Kama Sutra illustrations as they became familiar with these forms when Persia started having more direct cultural interactions with Mughal Empire.
