La Grosse Maria ou Vénus de Montmartre Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, vers 1885 Huile sur toile, 80,7 x 64,8 cm Von der Heydt Museum, Wuppertal 58 59 Je vois quÊelles me comprennent et Ne se détournent pas. Je vois quÊelles sont dignes de moi. CÊest de ces femmes que je veux ¯tre le solide époux. Elles ne sont pas moins que moi, en rien ; Elles ont la face tannée par les soleils radieux et les vents qui passent, Leur chair a la vieille souplesse divine, le bon vieux ressort divin ; Nu pensif Anomyme, vers 1885 Daguerréotype stéréoscopique teint à la main 60 Elles savent nager, ramer, monter à cheval, Lutter, chasser, courir, frapper, Fuir et attaquer, résister, se défendre.

12 Ses yeux sont comme des colombes au bord des ruisseaux, se baignant dans le lait, reposant au sein de lÊabondance. 13 Ses joues sont comme un parterre dÊaromates, une couche de plantes odorantes ; ses lèvres sont des lis, dÊoù découle la myrrhe. 14 Ses mains sont des anneaux dÊor, garnis de chrysolithes ; son corps est de lÊivoire poli, couvert de saphirs. 15 Ses jambes sont des colonnes de marbre blanc, posées sur des bases dÊor pur. Son aspect est comme le Liban, distingué comme les cèdres.

1 JÊentre dans mon jardin, ma sflur, ma fiancée ; Je cueille ma myrrhe avec mes aromates, je mange mon rayon de miel avec mon miel, je bois mon vin avec mon lait... Mangez, amis, buvez, enivrez-vous dÊamour ! 2 JÊétais endormie, mais mon cflur veillait. CÊest la voix de mon bien-aimé qui frappe : ÿ Ouvre-moi, ma sflur, mon amie, ma colombe, ma parfaite ! Car ma tête est couverte de rosée, mes boucles sont pleines des gouttes de la nuit Ÿ. 3 JÊai ôté ma tunique, comment la remettrais-je ? JÊai lavé mes pieds, comment les salirais-je ?
