Massage in the Harem

The Massage in the Harem (1883) by the French painter Édouard Debat-Ponsan (1847-1913). One of the better, means more interesting oriental paintings.

Salomé Dancing

Salomé (1932) by the Spanish painter Federico Beltrán Massés (1885-1949). Kind of an Art Deco interpretation. Because there’s no head to be seen, it must be the moment when she’s still dancing, putting down the veils.

A Study

One of these wonderful studies by the Scottish artist William Russell Flint (1880 - 1969). So easily done and so perfect.
