Female strippers were first documented in the late nineteenth century in Ireland.
A woman called Mary Jane is credited with introducing the art to Ireland and becoming a major patron of the art.
But she was not the only one.
In 1885, Irish artist and painter Charles Rolfe painted the stripper, who is portrayed in the painting as a female lion.
Rolfes later claimed to have painted her as a black cat, and in 1903 the artist was awarded the Nobel Prize for literature.
Other artists including John O’Hara, Frank O’Connor and James Joyce were all credited with painting female stripper.
Irish women are now recognised for their work in the arts and literature, with the Irish Academy of Fine Arts (AIFA) named in her honour.
But not all Irish women have been as prominent in the entertainment industry.
Female artists such as Catherine Fennell have often been associated with the female stripe.
Fennells paintings of women strippers and other female performers, in particular, have been considered classics.

Fannell was also one of two artists in the world to receive the Royal Irish Academy Prize for Fine Arts.
Fertile with the world of entertainment, Fennills works were recognised with the Royal British Academy of Arts, the National Portrait Gallery and the Irish Society of Illustrators, among others.
FENNILL’S ART METHODS In her lifetime, Fannells work was commissioned by a number of companies, including Coca-Cola, British Rail, British Airways, British Post and American Airlines.
FANNILL’s work has often been considered a highlight of the exhibition, with male stripper and female stripping performers also featured.
