It portrays a nude woman reclining on a bed of pillows, and was probably commissioned by Manuel de Godoy , to hang in his private collection in a separate cabinet reserved for nude paintings. Goya created a pendant of the same woman identically posed, but clothed, known today as La maja vestida The Clothed Maja ; also in the Prado, it is usually hung next to La maja desnuda. The subject is identified as a maja based on her costume in La maja vestida. The painting is renowned for the straightforward and unashamed gaze of the model towards the viewer. It has also been cited as among the earliest Western artwork to depict a nude woman's pubic hair without obvious negative connotations such as in images of prostitutes. It has been in the Museo del Prado in Madrid since Although the two versions of the Maja are the same size, the sitter in the clothed version occupies a slightly larger proportion of the pictorial space; according to art historian Janis Tomlinson she seems almost to "press boldly against the confines of her frame", making her more brazen in comparison to the comparatively "timid" nude portrait. The painting carries many of the traditions of depictions of the nude in Spanish art, but marks a clear break in significant ways, especially in her bold gaze. The identity of the model and why the paintings were created are unknown.

If he is the right person for me, then I would wait and deal with the busy schedule in the meantime. I'm keeping myself occupied with my kid, work but I wonder if my career will ever take precedence. I think I handle the lonliness a little better than most because I was an only child and like having my alone time. For me this has been an opportunity to increase my love, tolerance, compassion and acceptance.
I knew going into this it would be difficult, so I've braced myself, but I'd be lying if I didn't say there's a lot of disappointment that comes along with the relationship. Submit a new text post.
