This painting is a play of contrasts with hard & soft textures and warm & cool sensations. Inspired by an Orientalist French painting from the 18th century where a girl lies upon a soft bed of furs, Gottlieb paints an exotic picture where warm sensuality is cooled by the surrounding marble walls. It is a painting where something sensual is captured yet also something that is both pure and decorative in nature.
