One-sided female nudity has been a theme in art, particularly in Orientalist paintings of the 19th century. A typical scene may be a depiction of white slavery in which one or several nude female slaves are displayed before an audience of men at a slave market . The archetypal example of this type of scene is Jean-Léon Gérôme 's The Slave Market , in which a nude female slave is examined by a potential buyer. Another example is Gérôme's Phryné devant l'Areopage ( Phryne before the Areopagus , 1861) which was based on the trial of Phryne before the Areopagus in ancient Greece. The odalisque (harem scene) was also a popular subject for depicting one-sided female nudity, although the clothed figures in the scene were not always male.
