SPLENDOURS & MISERIES: Images of Prostitution in France, 1850-1910
Exhibition catalog. Prostitution became a central subject for artists between the mid-nineteenth century and the Great War. Some, like Edouard Manet's Olympia, and Pablo Picasso's Demoiselles d'Avignon, are overt. Others, like Gustave Courbet's Young Ladies on the Banks of the Seine and Auguste Renoir's The Umbrellas approach the subject ambiguously. Import. Well illustrated in color.
