"Odalisque" by Miklos Mihalovits

"Odalisque" by Miklos Mihalovits

Titled "Odalisque", but I think this is a slave dealer showing a girl before prospective buyers, only for her to turn away in fear or despair at her situation. It doesn't help that she is naked and vulnerable apart from a rag of linen tied around her waist, as the dealer's hand lingers over her bare hip.
