The incandescent relationship between art and prostitution. Courtesans, trollops, demimondaines… At the turn of the 20th century in Paris, these muses of a particular genre presented new challenges to modern painting and literature — Zola’s Nana comes to mind. From Manet to Degas, Van Gogh, Toulouse-Lautrec and Picasso, the painters who portrayed them broke with the academic rules to find new artistic approaches.
