Realism  ·  Female nude

Probably the most famous prostitute of Greek antiquity, Phryne wrote in the 4th century BC. By their beauty and their rich history. The politically motivated trial against her has been documented by various historians. Phryne's attorney Hypereides is said to have exposed his client in court in the face of imminent conviction, with the result that the overwhelmed judges immediately released her. The men could not bring themselves to simply destroy such a beauty according to Aphrodite's image and were filled with compassion. Jean-Léon Gérôme was inspired by this event, whose content is controversial, to his painting Phryne before the jury. The artwork shows the moment of disembarkation. Hypereides, Phryne tears off the robe, ashamed, she covers her face, but does not turn her body away. It appears as a statue, as an object. The present men react with different body language to the sight of the naked culprits. Some of the gentlemen look horrified and stunned, like the man who has jumped up from his seat and is stretching his arms upwards. Others present astonishment or curiosity. They lean forward to see better the bared Phryne. In some faces joy and amusement are apparent. Phryne is in this portrayal the perfect and pure beauty, on the one hand full of innocence and shame, on the other hand with prominent eroticism. It attracts everyone's attention and can not stand even the sight of the excited men. The painting itself, which was first exhibited in Paris in 1861, also caught the eye and caused many reactions, including the allegation of pornography.
