I believe Manet’s main objectivefor painting was to shock his audience and Olympia was no exception; assuggested in the reading, viewers at the Salon of 1865 were disturbed by herclass, they did not consider her to be a courtesan because her stocky body wasmore characteristic of the working class; her gaze as opposed to Titian’sReclining Nude was very direct as if awaiting a current customer’s approach. Ido not believe that Manet’s painting would have the same impact on viewers todaybecause today’s society is subject to much more vulgarity and obscenity thanManet’s paintings possessed.
