Harem Exploitation

Before the Punishment by the Hungarian painter Franz Eisenhut (1857-1903). Eisenhut is considered one of Austria-Hungary's greatest academic painters in the second half of the 19th century an specialized in Orientalist subjects.
Here he did a really spectacular piece. Two disobedient harem slaves are awaiting their punishment stretching their erotic bodies  for all the onlookers of the painting.

  1. I can see the erotic stretching, but their legs are in irons! And since the title gives the story away, we know that catastrophe is to follow shortly. Ditto the armed guard is not a good sign.
