Henri Regnault, Salomé, 1870
From the Metropolitan Museum of Art:
Regnault initially represented this Italian model as an African woman, but he later enlarged the canvas at the bottom and right and transformed it into a representation of Salomé. She is shown after having danced for her stepfather, Herod Antipas, governor of Judaea. The platter and knife allude to the reward she claimed for her performance: the severed head of John the Baptist. 

Regnault was killed during the Franco-Prussian War, just months after this picture was exhibited to great acclaim at the Salon of 1870. For years, the painting was considered a masterpiece of contemporary art. In 1912, when it was announced that it would be sold from a private collection, Baron Henri de Rothschild initiated a campaign to keep it in France. He was unsuccessful; “Salomé” was presented to the Metropolitan by one of the Museum’s trustees in 1916. - See more at:
