“[…] there is [rather] nudity and us, we who are in the very place of lighting; in other words, it is our gaze which, in opening itself upon the nudity of Olympia, illuminates her. […] we are responsible for the visibility and for the nudity of Olympia. […] we are – every viewer finds this – necessarily implicated in this nudity and we are at a certain extend responsible. You see how aesthetic transformation can, in a case such as this, provoke a moral scandal.” Michel Foucault in: Manet and the Object of Painting.
