Terre érotique (1955) is an oil on panel painting by French artist André Masson. It was ordered by Masson's stepbrother, the psychoanalyst Jacques Lacan, to mask Gustave Courbet's provocative painting L'Origine du monde (The Origin of the World), of which Lacan was the last private owner. It is somewhat of an erotic landscape. Masson made other 'terres érotiques' which were more explicit.
