Salome Dance of the 7 Veils

When in the 20th century realistic painting vanished it was replaced by Hollywood, which carried on not only with the subjects but likewise with the manner to work with images.

As an example here a clip from the movie Salome (1953) with Rita Hayworth as Princess Salome and Charles Laughton as King Herod.

It's easy to see that this movie owes a lot to history painting of the 19th century.
