piffard

“ ‘At the Colosseum’ by the British painter Harold Hume Piffard (1895-1938). Piffard depicts here an elegant Roman noblewoman watching compfortly the bloody spectacle below. A well constructed contrast indeed." 

Implied "constructed contrast” between elegancy and cruelty depends solely on the viewers imagination as it is just withdrawable from the context.
