The Surprise (exhibited 1828)

Claude-Marie Dubufe: The Surprise

A startled woman draws her shawl around her. Her pose is based on the famous classical sculpture, The Medici Venus, a lifesize Hellenistic marble sculpture depicting the Greek goddess of love Aphrodite. The picture was exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1828.
