Pandora - 19th century nudes
Two times Pandora by the French painter Jules Joseph Lefebvre (1836-1911). She helds her famous box containing all the evils of the world. But thats only a symbol indicating that this pretented to be pandora. Lefebvres real intention was to paint another two naked women, which he could sell so well.
You shouldn't forget that greek women an the old vase-paintings usually wore clothes.
