EDITORS COMMENTS
This print captures Edouard Manet's iconic painting, "Olympia". The artwork, created in 1863, showcases a young woman lying naked on a bed while her black maid presents her with a beautiful bouquet of flowers. Measuring at an impressive size of 1.3x1.9 meters, this masterpiece is housed in the Musee d'Orsay in Paris. Manet's "Olympia" caused quite a stir when it was first exhibited due to its bold depiction of female nudity and the inclusion of a black servant. Challenging societal norms and conventions, Manet aimed to provoke discussions about race, class, and power dynamics during that time period. In this photograph by Photo Josse, we are given an intimate glimpse into the world of art history as we witness the juxtaposition between the two women - one nude and reclining luxuriously on the bed while the other stands respectfully beside her offering flowers. The contrast between their positions raises questions about social hierarchy and exploitation. With its impeccable composition and attention to detail typical of French impressionism, this image serves as a reminder of Manet's revolutionary contributions to art. It invites viewers to contemplate themes such as beauty standards, privilege, and agency within society. As we admire this timeless piece captured through Photo Josse's lens, let us appreciate how art continues to challenge our perspectives even centuries after its creation.
