Abstract:

"Through painting, photography, sculpture, the decorative arts and cinema, as well as wealth of documentary material, the exhibition Splendours & miseries : images of prostitution in France, 1850-1910 is an invitation to examine in depth topics that resonate with contemporary preoccupations. Moving back and forth between the levity that we find in the shows and press illustrations of the day and the gravity of prostitution-related issues (the status of women and wasys and means to their emancipation, gender relations, sex and marriage, etc.) it shows how the clash of sex and money is a core feature of creative powers."--Page 10.
