IPTC INFO
CaptionIn his 1884 novel rebours Frenchman Joris-Karl Huysmans describes in somewhat fevered terms the depiction of Salome in Moreau's painting: ________ No longer was she merely the dancing-girl who extorts a cry of lust and concupiscence from an old man by the lascivious contortions of her body; who breaks the will masters the mind of a King by the spectacle of her quivering bosoms heaving belly and tossing thighs; she was now revealed in a sense as the symbolic incarnation of world-old Vice the goddess of immortal Hysteria the Curse of Beauty supreme above all other beauties by the cataleptic spasm that stirs her flesh and steels her muscles - a monstrous Beast of the Apocalypse indifferent irresponsible insensible poisoning.
