La puanteur femelle

I went to the Philadelphia Museum of Art yesterday. Every Friday evening, they have a live concert in the main lobby/staircase, which provides some nice ambience for those who want to browse the collection and listen to music, provided you don't wander too far away from the performers. Regardless, it's still a good idea to listen to some music and look at some art. I was with good company, too, so that made it all the better.

However, I write about this only to say that I saw a very fascinating Matisse - his Yellow Odalisque from 1937 - hanging no more than one foot away from the woman's lavatory. In case your English isn't so hot, they hung it next to the shitter.

I only hope the statement was unintentional.
