Paul Sieffert: Female Nude, 1927

Paul Sieffert (1874–1957) is among those artists who, in the later 19th and 20th century, specialized completely on female nudes, becoming the forerunners of magazines like Playboy. He rarely dated his works, this small (27 × 21.5 cm) oil-on-panel painting is an exception.

Megilla was one of the last paintings by John William Godward, after his return to England.
