Harvest

This flyer for an "erotic art show" is a little tiny bit NSFW, but it's also hilariously clever and very well done:

Ha! It's nice to see latex types portraying themselves with a little bit of sly humor instead of their tired "Weimar Republic in hell" schtick.

The flyer is, of course, based on this:

I didn't know the part about her being paralyzed. Is that well-known? And if so, is it part of the lasting appeal of the painting? I thought the painting was so popular because it expressed a certain kind of wistful nostalgic longing, not because it featured a handicapped girl struggling in a field. Your thoughts, please.
