'Evening, Fall of Day' - William Rimmer

More on Rimmer here, including a brief story:
He wished to paint Eve as God made her, but since his picture was intended for paid show in Boston and the year was 1839, she was draped. Someone remarked her drapery looked like a doormat. `It ought to,' growled Rimmer, `it was painted from one.'
Another Rimmer piece, posted at 'Not PC' some months ago, is here.
