Olympia (detail) by Édouard Manet, depicts what may have been meant as a courtesan gazing at her viewer.  "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
