Dirty Old Man

Lot and his daughters by the French painter Lubin Baugin (c. 1612-1663). One of the daughters helds the wine jug the other is pushing the fathers hand with the cup, but despite all of that, I think there is still a very horny old man.


  1. Dear Judy,
    Just a few words to tell you how much I enjoy your blog. Thank you for sharing your knowledge and interests in these amazing works of art.
    Best wishes to you for the holidays and for the coming new year.

  2. Unto the pure all things are pure: but unto them that are defiled and unbelieving is nothing pure; but even their mind and conscience is defiled. (Titus 1:15)

    The Holy Scripture says that Lot was righteous. He was certainly not horny. If he was, the daughters need not to make him drunk.

  3. But that's not the point.
    As mentioned above, this is no religious blog. So it's not about what Lot did or not - if he ever existed.
    It's all about how artists interpreted this old myth. Some depict Lot as a victim, and others as a dirty and horny old man.
