Dom is fond of the word – ‘why’.
During a visit to the Met he observed placards that gave a quick glimpse into the stories behind  the centuries-old paintings and sculptures.
Ahead we found the sculptures of Praxiteles and the paintings of Titian, Manet and Degas  depicting the nameless and infamous women  –  mythic figures like Venus and Salome to very real ladies like Madame X and Grace Elliott. Unfortunately the details given are at best sketchy.
Dom examined it and unable to find the requisite information, he  turned to me and asked – tell me why not ?
