Louvre Museum. Louvre Museum's Visitor Trails. Here, Ingres transposed the antique theme of the female nude to the Near East, a place he had traveled to only in his dreams and the pretext for the sensual image of a naked woman in a harem—hence the title, The Large Odalisque—set against an exotic background.

Louvre Museum's Visitor Trails

Until the end of his life, Ingres continued to paint exotic scenes and female nudes, one of his favorite subjects—as in The Turkish Bath—drawing on influences as diverse as Raphael, the Mannerists, and Persian miniatures. Whereas Ingres, like his master David, was a classical artist in terms of technique and his interest in antiquity, which he showed in other works, he distanced himself from this trend by giving priority to draftsmanship, pure lines, and sensual curves, distorting anatomical reality if necessary. This odalisque has three vertebrae too many. The Metropolitan Museum of Art. Musée d’Orsay. Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza. A Virtual Tour of the Mütter Museum.

In the process, MMCA established itself as a representative institution of Korean modern art. The museum’s four branches, including Gwacheon (opened in 1986), Deoksugung (opened in 1998), Seoul (opened in 2013), and Cheongju (expected to open in 2017), each in its own way, will continue to carry out MMCA’s commitment to the art and culture of Korea by enriching the first-hand cultural experience of the viewing public. Boasting a superb natural landscape surrounding the site, MMCA Gwacheon will be devoted to various genres of visual arts such as architecture, design, and crafts. Located within a historical site, MMCA Deoksugung will showcase modern art from Korea and overseas. National Museum of the USAF. National Women's History Museum. Skip to main content Donate.

National Women's History Museum

National Women's History Museum. As American men left the industrial labor force to enlist during World War II, American women entered the workforce in unprecedented numbers.

The demands of a wartime labor market made it more acceptable for women to take on jobs in manufacturing, utilities, and transport that in peacetime had mostly been done by men. The War Advertising Council, which implemented a massive national campaign to usher women into the workplace, became an integral part in organizing the movement. Recruiting two million women into the workforce to support the war economy, the “Women in War Jobs” campaign is considered to be the advertising industry's most successful recruitment campaign in the United States.

Women came from all over the country to work in the assembly lines of defense production plants that were converted or built to mass produce ever more sophisticated armaments.
