A couple of vintage photos of Itasse’s works, remastered for your viewing pleasure and reduced eyestrain. I suspect that Bacchante might have seemed like a shockingly erotic subject, especially for a female artist at the time, while her nude Egyptian Harpist obviously invites comparisons with Edward Onslow Ford’s The  Singer, exhibited just two years earlier and included for comparison.
