The Grand Odalisque


Dear Readers:

I just came across a remarkable site: Revolt in the Desert. Lawrence of Arabia has done a wonderful essay about one of my very favorite masterpieces: Jean Auguste Dominique Ingres, “The Grand Odalisque” (1814).

I am a scientist, but I do enjoy taking the right side of my brain for a spin (occasionally) to appreciate fine art. I had to share this exciting Internet find.
