Showing Boobs

Bathsheba by the Flemish Baroque painter Peter Paul Rubens (1577-1640)

Maybe that it’s a typical Bathsheba painting: She with her servants, and in the distance king David on the balcony. But there’s a little more. The way how she’s exhibiting boobs and legs goes way further. And last not least was the little dog a symbol for prostitution. So Rubens left no doubt, that Bathsheba used all her tricks to seduce king David.
