Romi's Window

Endlessly amused by these reactions to artwork in the windows at Romi art gallery in Paris as photographed by Robert Doisneau in 1948. Although it also reminds me of this quote by John Berger, "you painted a naked woman because you enjoyed looking at her, put a mirror in her hand and you called the painting “Vanity,” thus morally condemning the woman whose nakedness you had depicted for you own pleasure."
