Example text

In other words, art provides a route to historically interesting information concerning the content of the ideology of the public of the time. Pictures, Knowledge, and Power 23 Let us return to Olympia to solve the puzzle described above. Much of Clark’s work here is empirical, and I shall simply allow that his claims are well grounded. Where possible, I shall put them in their weakest form. Clark claims that it was part of the ideological background of bourgeois Paris of the 1860s that women were seen to fall into certain categories: the three he mentions are honest woman, courtesan, and prostitute.

Finally, the reconstruction indicates a limit as to what Clark can and cannot build into the surface of a painting. What emerges is a restricted version of the overall thesis. This is not, however, a loss, as the stronger claims Clark makes do not seem tenable. To reconstruct Clark’s argument we need to use what Barrie Falk has called “a sophisticated kind of phenomenal experience,” an ‘s-phenomenal experience,’ for short (1993: 67). Falk’s topic is visual processing and what it might tell us about consciousness.

The idea of the nude, for T. J. Clark, is that it exhibits a general sexuality, and that the naked body is not the object of a particular sexual desire. The form of the nude was a barrier to the invocation of the world of commercial sex. This cultural hope was breaking down by 1865. Academic paintings of the nude by painters such as Bougereau and Cabanel were overtly sexual. Part of the scandal surrounding Olympia was due to the artist making this explicit. Sex was supposedly expelled outright from Woman’s body, only to reappear within it as a set of uncontrolled inflection – those rolling eyes and orgasmic turns of the hip that the critics spent their time finding decent ways to denounce.
