Very nice composition. The fluted column brings a pleasing geometrical contrast to her curves, providing a Euclidian background to an odalisque motif. It recalls to mind Aristotle’s saying, “The mathematical sciences particularly exhibit order, symmetry, and limitation; and these are the greatest forms of the beautiful.”

Bondage is the limitation par excellence.
