"The thief" by Antonio Maria Fabres y Costa

"The thief" by Antonio Maria Fabres y Costa

Fabres painting La Ladrona ("The Thief") in the los Tiros art gallery in Granada was made in about 1900 and shows a female criminal standing in the street as a warning to others.

There's also a closeup of the top part of the image, showing her expression and the hanging jewellery.
