The Rape of Europa 1732-34 Francois Boucher - Perhaps the most voluptuous painting ever created. And one of the paintings that made me realize that nudity and erotica were entirely acceptable in the 18th century, as long as the nude and erotic figures were mythological gods and goddesses. So much more civilized than today.
