And, last, but, certainly not least, were the paintings of nude women that often draped the walls of historic saloons. Paintings of nude women have always been popular, but never more so as they were during the 19th century, especially hanging over the bar of a saloon filled with rowdy men. While the great artists of Europe painted masterpieces that today, hang in museums, hundreds of others copied their styles, techniques, and figures to produce numerous erotic works displaying naked women in lustful poses.

 

 

Fartima Painting in the Bird Cage Theatre, Tombstone, Arizona

This image available for photographic prints HERE!

 

 

In the lobby of the Bird Cage Theatre in Tombstone, Arizona is a larger-than-life sized painting entitled Fatima. The original painting is of a woman named Farida Mazar Spyropoulos, who went by the stage name of Fatima. She played the Bird Cage in 1881, and this was a gift from her to the theatre. It has hung in this spot since 1882.

 

Paintings of harems or a single harem girl were often popular in the saloons of the Old West. The ultimate male fantasy, these paintings depicted rich Persian dynasties filled with the beautiful women of the royal harem, surrounded by velvets and gold, who were smiling and eager to serve their master. Due to the writings of explorers, American men imagined a harem as a top-of-the-line bordello with half-clad women laying around pools or spas, their bodies oiled, glistening with jewels, and rich fabrics. With a pouting smile on their lips, their sole purpose was to please the powerful man for whom they had given themselves for service.
