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’”.

Introducing GODDESS Press, a new publishing platform that exists to provide a home for art and literature aimed at exploring and exploding gender and beauty, and to publish exciting work that challenges and questions in any number of fields.

The debut publication from GODDESS Press is BEAUTIES by Micah Jones with foreword by Mehron Abdollmohammadi. 

Micah Jones’ book of sketches for GODDESS PRESS, a collection of trans beauties real and imagined, performs what I would call a generous narcissism: an insistent, dynamic technique of self-production, and self-representation. Her illustrations are playful, alluring, dramatic; performances of a particularly eruptive genre of beauty. Each delicate curve, each shaded lid is a drop in the pond from which we drink, for which we thirst. 

-From the foreword by Mehron Abdollmohammadi.

Preorder the book before October 20 and receive 25% off.
