Splendours and Miseries: Images of Prostitution in France, 1850–1910
In The New York Review of Books, Ian Buruma writes, “The exhibition, organized together with the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, is full of wonders, and has a far more serious purpose than some French critics have acknowledged. It is fascinating to see, for example, how the image of prostitutes changed, not just from artist to artist, but in the course of time. The show is not just about art, but an absorbing illustration of social history.”
