There is a fascination of the human female's relationship with apes.

fin de siècle

A number of fin de siècle artworks betray a fascination with human female/non-human primate contact.

While precursors include the apelike ogre in Fuseli's The Nightmare (1781), the first works in this category are Emmanuel Frémiet's sculptures Gorilla Carrying off a Woman (1887) and An Orang Outan Strangling a Young Borneo Savage (1895).

Then, in 1902, there is Hostile Forces, a detail of the Beethoven Frieze by Gustav Klimt.

Alfred Kubin produced at least three works in this category: Lubricity (1902), One Woman For All[1] (1900-01) and The Ape (1903-1906).
