Paul Cezanne’s “Modern Olympia” sparked a whole lotta drama at its Salon exhibition, which, granted, considering we’re just as voyeuristic as this gentleman in the foreground. (Critics also called his style “delirious.” Also, sir, is that a whip?!)

Personally, I think all these prostitution symbols in the work (the dude, the dog, the handmaid) are today’s equivalent of over-the-knee boots at work. Something about them is just a little too Pretty Woman, don’t you think?julia.jpg
