Now take, by contrast, this rather anti-feminist idea for a painting (IMO), namely the story of Lot being made drunk by his daughters so they could seduce him. Their reason in the Bible was that they thought they were the last living humans, and meant to repopulate earth, AFAIR.
To me, that sounds like one of the oldest examples of slut-shaming/woman-blaming: Lot cannot handle his drink, or uses his drunkenness as an excuse, and has sex with his own daughters. Who is the bad person? Well… sure not poor old Lot, shining example of one of God’s chosen!
Anyway, I did not really pick this painting to rant, but because it also is exhibited in Valletta, and I really like the art of it, not the content. You have to admit, the artist makes the women look rather awesome in their “up for the naughty stuff tonight” way.
