... out to us the Young & Jackson's hotel where there is a famous painting of a nude Chloe, queen of the saloon bar. In 1875 Chloe was immortalised by 19th century painter, Jules Joseph Lefevre. Marie, the artists model was only 19, when this was painted and 2 years later she committed suicide; all for unrequited love. There's more to the history of this painting but I won't add that here.
