This is a portrait of the transgender artist Lili Elbe painted by her lover, artist Gerda Wegener, circa 1928. I have altered tone, colour and contrast in order to ensure the picture more closely resembles the original. The image is from Wikimedia Commons.
‘Lili Elbe was a trans woman. She was born a male in Denmark in 1882 and named Einar Wegener. She married Gerda Wegener: they were both painters. She changed sex and was called Lili Elbe. Elbe had several surgical operations to reconfigure her genital organs and died in the course of her fifth operation.’ [Flickr]. Click here for more information.
Take care and keep laughing!
