Καλέ ναι, μην κοροιδεύεστε, λέτε ανιστόρητες αρλούμπες. Η Ολυμπία του Μανέ εκτέθηκε στο Salon de Paris, την επίσημη έκθεση της Académie des Beaux-Arts το 1865. Και αυτοί που "έλεγαν τα ιδια" ήταν το κοινό και οι κριτικοί όπως ξαναματαείπα. Το λέει και η γουικιπίντια αλλά να, προσφορά του καταστήματος και οι ακριβοθΏρΗτες πηγές: https://faculty.risd.edu/bcampbel/Various%20authors%20on%20Manet's%20Olympia.pdf
Η αγαπημένη μου κριτική είναι του κριτικού Amédée Cantaloube “This Olympia is a sort of female gorilla, a grotesque in India rubber outlined in black, apes on a bed, in a state of complete nudity, the horizontal attitude of Titian’s Venus: the right arm rests on the body in the same fashion, except for the hand, which is flexed in a sort of shameless contraction.”
Αλλά και οι κριτικός και ποιητής Theophile Gautier δεν πάει πίσω στην ανοησία: "With some repugnance I come to the peculiar paintings by Manet. It is awkward to discuss them, but they cannot be passed by in silence. . . . Many people think it is enough to pass them by and laugh, but that is a mistake. Manet is not without importance; he has a school, he has admirers, even fanatic followers; his influence extends further than is generally realized. M. Manet has the honor of being a danger. But now the danger is passed.

The shadows are indicated by more or less large smears of blacking. What’s to be said of the negress who brings a bouquet of flowers in a paper, or the black cat that leaves its muddy footprints on the bed? We would still excuse the ugliness were there only some truth in it, some careful study, heightened by some splendid effect of color. Even the least pretty woman has bones, muscles, skin and some sort of color. Here there is nothing, we are sorry to say, but the desire to attract…"
Και τέλος για πρωτοπορίες μιλήσατε εσείς, που η βιβλιογραφία σας έχει μείνει στο 1700, προσωπικώς ουδέποτε χρησιμοποίησα αυτό τον μπανάλ όρο, καθώς παρόμοιες performance γίνονται εδώ και αρκετά χρόνια, μη σας πω δεκαετίες και πάθετε ανακοπή.
Λοιπόν γειά σας τώρα, πάω να πλύνω κανα πιάτο
