RMN-Grand Palais

Olympia (19th Century) 創作者:Edouard Manet (1832-1883)和Paris, musée d'Orsay原始來源:Paris, musée d'Orsay

This young woman, completely naked and exposed for all to see, assertively looks out at the onlooker with an almost defiant expression that caused a scandal in its time.

A servant stares at the young woman suggestively, bringing her a bouquet—perhaps a gift from an admirer, or even a client.

The little cat with a green sharp glance, a perked tail, is often perceived as an erotic allusion that reinforces the licentious atmosphere of the scene.
