La Maja Desnuda And La Maja Vestida - Poem by Dr. Ram Mehta

Nudes were outlandish and unique in Goya's time
A harlot asked to paint her nude with pubic hair
On criticism he refused to paint with clothes sublime
Instead painted another one with clothes fair
Clothes make the man, especially woman with care.
