Neoclassical Susanna

Susanna Caught by the Elders (1831) by the Russian painter Grigory Ignatyevich Lapchenko (1801-1876).

This is a typical Neoclassical painting. The artist shows his skills: the perfect nude body, the illumination (there must be a spotlight on the upper left) and the crystal clear water. The two Elders in the background are only there to give the painting a title. Otherwise it could be any nude.
