This painting of Salome by Gustave Moreau
I LOVE when artists do this, but admittedly it drives me crazy when I know there is an allusion I'm not catching or quite remembering. Case in point, I had to ask Jason Rainville about the Menzel painting. (And he made my day by responding with the answer to my question. Super nice guy.)
