Reverse copy after a drawing by Albrecht Dürer.

Public baths for both men and women enjoyed great popularity in Renaissance Germany; women’s baths in particular were frequent subjects of artists like Albrecht Dürer and his followers. Images of female nudity often carried erotic overtones, as seen here in the woman at center, who gazes directly at the viewer while turning her body in a frontal pose. These depictions of the female nude sometimes carried moral and menacing messages, as they were also used to portray women as prostitutes and witches.
