People in the artistic community at the time were wholly familiar with sapphic relationships being portrayed in art, but were used to these scenes being portrayed in the ‘academic art’ style, which consisted of smooth, simplistic, idealised versions of the nude female form.

Other realist paintings suffered the same controversy, Manet’s Olympia is a perfect example, where the problem was not that the painting depicted a nude woman in an erotic pose, but the fact that she was just an ordinary courtesan, given an identity portrayed in a place of power control. Realism humanized the female form in art, removed it from its previous role as a representation of the ideal.

RiseofThe Vegan.com Rob Bailey, music producer, fitness icon, YouTube star, entrepreneur and husband of Dana Linn Bailey (2013 Ms. Olympia Physique) has just announced he hasn't consumed meat for 1.5 years and has been vegan for the last 5 months. At 256lbs he declared: "No animals have to die for me to be this size" Rob and Dana Linn Bailey both carry an enormous amount of influence in the fitness world and their actions show their millions of followers that meat isn't necessary, and that having compassion isn't a weakness but a strength. Rob Bailey recognises that standing up for the defenseless is a true sign of an alpha-male and leader. IG Caveganbodybuilding www.rise of the vegan .com 🌱💪 Rob Bailey shows he isn't afraid to go against the status-quo and stand up for what's right. The mark of a true leader.
