The Shock of the Nude
Manet's OlympiaVideo Cassette - 2000
"Scandal surrounded the Paris 1865 exhibition of the painting, Olympia. Manet had dared to portray visual art's most universal subject, the nude, as an unidealized woman--a prostitute who stares directly at the viewer. He flouted the accepted ideas of beauty and propriety in art and outraged audiences. Although Olympia is now regarded at a masterpiece, visual artists continue to test society's conventions"--Packaging.
