Jean Leon Gerome - Slave Market "Le Marche aux Esclaves" - 3D Lenticular Postcard Greeting Card
4x6 inches - In clear protective reusable sleeve
A young woman has been stripped by a slave trader and presented to a group of fully clothed men for examination. A prospective buyer probes her teeth. This disturbing scene is set in a courtyard market intended to suggest the Near East. The vague, distant location allowed nineteenth-century French viewers to censure the practice of slavery, which was outlawed in Europe, while enjoying a look at the female body.
