Cleopatra pictures, 19th Century

Comment: This site would hardly justify itself if it weren't for the wonderful images produced in the 16–19th centuries, when nudes were in fashion, orientalism was all the rage, and people knew their Greek and Latin literature. Some are simple portraits, but most depict scenes from ancient literature, or Shakespeare. Her death accouts for about a third of these images; other moments include her presentation to Caesar, meeting, banqueting or boating with Antony, and testing poisons on prisoners.
