SEXUALLY CHARGED AND SENSUAL PORTRAIT OF A COUPLE IN LOVE

This vintage real photo postcard can be described as sensual, or even, sexually charged. A pretty in woman in a short dress and dark stockings sits on the lap of a tuxedoed man, and the two stare intently into each others eyes. The photo begs the observer to question the relationship of this lovely couple. Are they lovers? Are they performers, perhaps dance partners? The man and woman in this photograph are beautifully dressed. However, there is one infraction that needs the attention of the fashion police. The gentleman’s light colored striped socks deserve a citation. Dark socks would be more appropriate. The photographer of this portrait postcard is Georg Schoppmeyer who operated a photography business in Leipzig-Schonefeld, Germany. This vintage postcard is in very good condition (see scans).

  1. The text written on the back is the (slightly altered) beginning of a Poem: „O, wie schön sind Mädchenaugen, / Wenn aus ihnen Liebe spricht! / denn sie sind dann nichts als Seele / denn sie sind dann nichts als Licht.“ („o how beautiful are girl’s eyes, when they speak of love, for then they are nothing but soul, for then they are nothing but light“). The last line contains the three letters „Gei“ which would be the beginning oft he next word oft he poem („Geisterhaft“). I found the poem in the book „Aus der Mansarde“ by G. Fr. Daumer (Mainz 1861), page 345 (google books) – with the difference, that in the original the first line contains the word „Menschenaugen“ (human’s eyes) instead of „Mädchenaugen“ (girl’s eyes). Some of G. Fr. Daumer’s poems were set to music by Johannes Brahms in his „Liebeslieder Waltzes”, Op. 52 (but not his one, I beleive).
