Sad Day In the Life of A Nymphomaniac


From Casanova on, generations of Art critics and historians fantasized about this drawing of Francois Boucher. Who is she? One of the girls from Parc-aux-Cerfs, the nympho-harem of Louis XV? It had even been published under the title of Louise O’Murphie! The were others who voted for her sister. Yea-a-a…  And now A. Laing has dumped a bucket of cold water on our inflamed brains: From the letters of Bauchaumont to Boucher he had learned that the young woman is but Madame Boucher… This guy just reads too much, and this is not right. What he did is selfish! What he has taken away cannot be replaced! Where is the flight of theoretical imagination? And what if we all simply refuse to believe it?!
