Lightly draped, the Victorian nude has entered the world of Islam. The eyes of wealthy Middle Eastern collectors viewing next week's Victorian picture sales at Sotheby's and Christie's will stray from stallions and happy families towards more piquant images, such as Harold Piffard's The Sleeping Model - a young woman reclining in transparent harem trousers. Victorian pictures have been leading the picture market out of recession, but Middle Easterners are the only serious collectors of oil paintings of the Victorian nude.
