"Venus at the Opera"[1][2] (1844) is a plate from the Un autre monde album by French artist Grandville. The print, from the chapter Les amours d'un pantin et d'une étoile shows one woman, not even nude, from behind a balcony at the opera. A crowd of men stare at her. Their heads have morphed into eyeballs.
