Het Pelsken [1] (literally The Fur or The Pelt), also known as Hélène Fourment in a Fur Wrap is a 1638 portrait by Peter Paul Rubens of his second wife Helena Fourment getting out of the bath. It is now in the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna.

It is partially modeled after classical sculptures of the Venus Pudica type, such as the Medici Venus.
