Picturing a World

Vulgarity? Style!


In reading Letters to Camando by Edmund de Waal, I was much amused just now to come across his comment on this portrait by Carolus-Duran: "The critics have decided that this painting is the height of vulgarity but, my God she has style" (p. 48). Well, she does, doesn't she?!?
