Jo Gewidmet (Dedicated to Jo) appears to be one of Godal’s earliest erotic portfolios, judging from the title page of the artist in his pyjamas and a young woman in her birthday suit a personal tribute to the eponymous muse and lover.

This series of etching demonstrates Godal’s skill in producing lifelike and totally believable naked portraits using the minimum of line and shading. Jo was clearly an important early inspiration.
