Gustave Caillebotte - The Floor Scrapers (1875-6)
Original on top, later version below
"Despite the effort Caillebotte put into the painting, it was rejected by France’s most prestigious art exhibition, The Salon, in 1875. The depiction of working-class people in their trade, not fully clothed, shocked the jurors and was deemed a ‘vulgar subject matter.’
The images of the floor scrapers came to be associated with Degas’s paintings of washerwomen, also presented at the same exhibition and similarly scorned as ‘vulgar’”.

Fuck all the assholes that cruised past this on my blog and didn’t reblog, then went ahead and reblogged every fucking porn gif on my tumblr.
Do you people get that I am a sex worker and so are the people in those gifs? Fucking hypocritical fucks.
To quote George Carlin, “Selling is legal. Fucking is legal. Why isn’t selling fucking legal?”
Can I bellow “CUMMING” the same way I bellow “SWINTON”?
I remain skeptical.
yes, yes you can.
Also gentlemen, take note: this is how you age spectacularly.
I view him and SWINTON as the benevolent, saucy, ambiguous godparents we ALL need.
