    /// In the Studio young Hertha froze,

    having taken off all of her clothes,

    while the painter, (old goat),

    wears a long heavy coat

    and he’s bundled up head to his toes.

    /// Hertha knew that the job required stripping,

    but she trembles, her nose red and dripping.

    The stove gives off no heat,

    so she clenches her seat,

    and requests the flask from which he’s sipping.

    Despite the lack of heat, as long as the old man kept his clothes on, Helga didn’t mind stripping hers off.

    It certainly paid better than honest work.

    I’m no legal expert, but I don’t think he’ll get away with painting a nude underage girl by claiming she’s a nymph.

    Old artist Paul had about seen them all,

    Fat women, skinny, short, and tall.

    Although his paintings still sold well,

    He no longer cared, “What the h3ll,

    For me, mere nude women no longer enthrall.”

    .

    Mimi was a free spirit, not of the sort

    To be so shy as to refuse to cavort

    Sans clothes before artists admiring her a$$

    And transferring sublimed lust to their canvas.

    A shame that most men considered her sport.

    .

    A shame that Paul and she were ages apart

    He looked past her body and into her heart;

    She looked past his body and into his, too.

    Oh, Time, you cruel thief, why are you

    Not synched with Eros — your arrow, his dart?

    There was a good reason that old Heinrich liked to keep himself warm, his studio cold, and his models nude.

    Heinrich loved sharing pictures of his grandchildren, but it just made everyone else at the senior center uncomfortable.

    Before he can paint, he must swaddle/

    Himself- and nearby place a bottle/

    But he won’t pay for fuel/

    He’s both cheap and he’s cruel:/

    He’s not one to coddle the model.

    In the studio or Studio scene

    Paste (including the quote marks) 

    "Category:Paintings of female models in the artist’s studio" Wikimedia 

    (syntax supported by the Google, Bing, Yahoo, Ecosia and Yandex search engines) in the browser address bar (or search for it using one of those search engines) and choose the first Category: found and once there find the text string Rettig, and click its link for info and links that point to more info (perhaps best viewed using the Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox browsers, which can automatically translate most webpages if necessary) about this roughly jumbo envelope size painting, including a Description (albeit in German). 

    Again, a larger strip image is shown by (Ctrl- or right-) clicking the image in Mr. Melcher’s MASTERPIECE #3233 (December 8, 2023) blog entry, accessible by the Check out the blog! box after the last comment, and using the dropdown menu (even larger, if you trim what’s after .png from the URL). I have added a comment there (awaiting Mr. Melcher’s approval) pointing to info about this artist I used to point to here. Only work by him used here so far.

    The model, who works in the raw/

    She is only sixteen/

    and the pose is obscene/
