Ingres - La Grande Odalisque

This is one of Ingres work, "La Grande Odalisque", 1814, in which he uses the exoticism, - the peacock fan, the turban, the enormous pearls, the hookah (a pipe for hashish or perhaps opium), - in a French interpretation way of the eastern culture.

I'm glad that you explained this as I would have probably missed the eastern aspect.

Have a terrific day Ana. :)
