the naked lady post and revelations on album cover photography

(to put it bluntly).

in my defense, this post only has one nude lady in it.  and it's for the sake of art.

this morning, a name popped into my head - ingres. jean auguste dominique.  who had a mastery of capturing the very feel of the fabric he painted.  here's what i mean:

princess albert de broglie, 1853

anyway, that's not the point.  the point is, i was reminded of his painting, la grande odalisque (1814).

i'm thinking that this may have been the painting that i thought of when i saw madeleine peyroux's album cover for half the perfect world - in my on music post.  hmmm.  now that i see them together they don't look particularly similar.  not even the pose, as i had originally thought.  maybe it was the colors?  maybe i am thinking of a different painting?
