Michael brought up an interesting point - at the time, presenting this type of image would have been quite something. It is important to understand the setting at the time the artwork was created. Understanding how 'things were' - for lack of a better term - when a piece was created has a lot to do with helping to interpret it. Interpreting something using todays standards but that was created at a time when it was revolutionary or controversial does not allow for proper understanding of the work. Thanks for mentioning that.
