Édouard Manet’s Olympia , finished in 1863, was based on Titian’s Venus of Urbino. [7] Olympia was a popular play about a courtesan called Olympia. This subject was extremely controversial for an artist to portray a woman like this because of traditional vision of the Academy. Manet was being very different from the accepted academic style by outlining and flattening space that created a distortion of classical elements. Olympia is provocative in her nudity that implies she is naked, not nude. [8] She is looking out in a very confrontational way, and setting the viewer as a man coming to the prostitute, although Olympia’s hand suggests she is not ready to engage with the customer. [9] The African servant calls on racism and slavery in France, because showing someone of color participating in French life was unheard of, furthering the works exotic nature.
