Found: Harem

So according to Wikipedia Harem refers to the sphere of women in a usually polygynous household and their quarters which is enclosed and forbidden to men. Painting or illustrations that have harem women have caught my eye lately and this what I have found and collected in the past few days.

Trouillebert, The Harem Servant

Ingres, La Grande Odalisque
