NLM Quiz no. 23: What Is Happening In This Painting?

Can you explain what is going on in this painting and why? (Click on image to enlarge.) I have a couple of hints to offer. 1. The architectural elements in the background are irrelevant, but everything in the foreground is relevant. 2. It is not necessary to know specifically who the woman is to explain what is going on, so correct answers that do not give her name will be accepted.
Please leave your answers in the combox, and feel free to add any details or explanations you think pertinent. It has been almost a year since our last quiz, so as a reminder, to keep it more interesting, please leave your answer before reading the other comments. Special awards are given for Best Wildly Incorrect Answer and Best Humorous Answer as well. Using Google image search is cheating – I may never know, but God will. The answer will be given in a separate post tomorrow.
