Salome and the Head of John the Baptist

This is Salome with the Head of John the Baptist done in 1893 by Aubrey Beardsley it is India and Watercolor.  I like the facial expressions on the characters in this piece you can see in Salome's face that she is supposed to be portrayed in a bad way, and you can really see the lack of life in the head of John the Baptist.  I also found it interesting when looking up this piece I found another of a similar name painted in a completely different way.
