"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’”.
Federica is my name. I’m 17 and I hate parties and alcohol, but take me to a concert and I’m the dancing queen. I’m super-awkward but hey, there are people who claim to be my friends, so I’m okay. I’m that kind of person who likes Backstreet Boys and isn’t ashamed of it even if I probably should be. I pretend to be perfectionistic but truth be told I’m careless as fuck. I consider myself a retired grammar nazi but who knows? I started listening to Indie Rock during my hipster-wanna-be period but I still like it. They say I’m a nerd but honestly I just like playing videogames and getting high (grades), that’s it. I know you sensitive tumblr girls are gonna be mad at me but I am that person who says «not all men» and «not all whites» and you seriously need to calm down. I’m never gonna finish all the A Song of Ice and Fire books but yolo I’m trying. Spoilers can’t hurt me anymore. I’m joking, actually they’re my worst fear. Crying because of fictional characters is part of my life, yay. I think my existence would be better if I could afford to talk like Jesse Pinkman. Ezra Koenig is my guru and source of inspiration and you should learn from him, too. «LIL’ JON, HE ALWAYS TELLS THE TRUTH»
I’M ON A HIATUS FROM THEME-MAKING: just know I hate almost all of my themes and I do not want to talk about them so don’t send me theme questions.
