Olympia (detail) by Édouard Manet was a succès de scandale when it was first exhibited at the Paris Salon of 1865. Today, it is considered as the start of modern art.  "Aux yeux memes de Manet la fabrication s'effacait. L'Olympia tout entiere se distingue mal d'un crime ou d'un spectacle de la morte . . . Tout en elle glisse a l'indifference de la beaute" --Manet (1955) by Georges Bataille
