Here is a candid photo of yours truly at the Musée D'Orsay, scrutinizing Courbet's crowd-pleasing L'Origine du monde, also known as La Twat, C'est Moi. Interesting!

WoW! You certainly got an eyeful. Always wear an overcoat into a museum in case you are unexpectedly bombarded by a giant vagina. On a serious note - beautiful painting! I hope you are having the time of your life. Say hi to Mary and Max!

Somehow, the big gold frame is the hilarious element. I think even Courbet would agree.

Ooh, la la! L'artiste, qui a osé ainsi montrer le désir et l'excitation, a réalisé une oeuvre quasi pornographique aux yeux de ses contemporains. So...How you gonna keep 'em down on the farm after they've seen Pareeee!?!

Great photo. It looks like a postcard by some saucy German painter.

VIVA le monde! Your photo/avitar on the upper right side of the Woodring Monitor seems to have taken an interest the piece as well. Well Done! Carry on!

What a dirty, dirty museum you found.

And big deal! I think I've seen that painting on the internet a thousand times- and painted from different angles too!

*heh* This was one of my wife's favorite paintings at the D'orsay when we visited in 2005. We have several pictures of it as well.

Actually, I have a little story about my encounter with this picture at the D'Orsay.

I was walking around, and I saw a knot of school kids (field trip, I presume), and there was this one geeky kid wearing a creepy, lurid grin lurching from the vicinity of the crotch shot. I just had to know the genesis of this, walked into the alcove he had just emerged from, and voilà.

Oh: And maybe someone can help me. There's this one mural-sized canvas there: It really impressed me, and I took a picture of it, brought it home, cleaned it up (e.g., adjusted for "pincushion"), and it's now a desktop. But I searched the Net, and the art section of a community college library (incl. a book on the D'Orsay), and no findee.

Someone know the title/artist?:

The painter is Jean Delville, and the picture is The School of Plato. Nuf sed!
