-The painting was inspired by [[Titian]]'s ''[[Venus of Urbino]]'', which in turn refers to [[Giorgione]]'s ''[[Sleeping Venus]]''[http://www.wga.hu/frames-e.html?/html/g/giorgion/venus.html]. There were pictorial precedents for a nude woman, attended by a (black) servant, such as [[Jean Auguste Dominique Ingres|Ingres]]' ''Odalisque with a Slave'' ([[1842]]), [[Léon Benouville]]'s ''Esther with Odalisque'' ([[1844]]) and [[Charles Jalabert]]'s ''Odalisque'' ([[1842]]).[http://19thc-artworldwide.org/spring_04/articles/floy_print.html] Comparison is also made to Ingres' ''La grande Odalisque'' ([[1814]]). But Manet did not depict a goddess or an [[odalisque]], but a high-class [[prostitution|prostitute]] waiting for a client. The classic work that most closely resembles Manet's in character is [[Francisco Goya]]'s ''[[La maja desnuda]]'' (c. 1800).+The '''''Sleeping Venus''''', also known as the '''''Dresden Madonna''''', is an extremely influential painting by the [[Italy|Italian]] [[Renaissance]] master [[Giorgione]], with, it is now generally accepted, the landscape and sky, by [[Titian]], completed after Giorgione's death in 1510, as [[Vasari]] first noted.
