Our Insiders' Article

Splendour & Misery

The subject of prostitution can definitely be shocking (and perhaps explicit!) to some. But the exposed works of art at the Splendour and Misery exhibition at Musée d’orsay are absolutely astounding. They give a very thorough, multidimensional look on a taboo subject. You’ll rarely see this at any major museum! In addition to what you’ll learn (and never forget), you will get up close and personal with very famous late 19th century paintings, such as Degas’s The Star and Henri by Toulouse-Lautrec.

Highlights

You will discover a vast array of themes and rooms about French prostitution from 1850 to 1910:

-          How the women were seen and identified in public by clients- their dress and appearances

-          The splendor of “show business” prostitution- in the Opéra and in ballet- as well as women who even hung out in brasseries or worked in spas or massage parlors to propose their services.

-          Interesting artifacts, including a bed, taken from a real “maison close” (brothel)

A rare look at the misery of their daily realities, including their medical problems

Conclusion

Spendour and Misery is a prime example of the Musée d’Orsay’s wide range of paintings, sculptures, and artifacts, which make it such a reputable and fantastic museum for any visitor. This large exposition is a fantastic portrayal of a subject that is sometimes serious and academic, brought to life by extraordinary artwork as well as superb information. Splendour and Misery, on the exceptionally colorful, secret universe of prostitution in France is not to be missed!
