Presumably, snipped from one of those risque magazines
of the 1960's 1970's.
In Australia, "Man" magazine, part of every sailor's locker.

Actually "The identity of the Majas are uncertain. The most popularly cited
subjects are the Duchess of Alba, with whom Goya is thought to have had an
affair, and the mistress of Manuel de Godoy, who subsequently owned the
paintings. Neither theory has been verified, and it remains as likely that
the paintings represent an idealized composite."
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Francisco_Goya

It is possible that two different models were employed by Goya for La maja
desnuda and La maja vestida.

Majas on stamps, on my old page:

Thanks Blair,
contrary to the Swiss Zealot's opinion
I own no feelings of concupiscence.
