Comparative Images of Prostitution in Impressionist Art and After

Student Shannon Agostino
Faculty Mentor(s) Dr. Joyce Howell
Department Art History
Course ARTH 351: 19th-Century Art History (Honors section)


This project establishes “norms” of Impressionist representation of prostitution (an omnipresent subject of these painters) and compares those norms with later approaches, such as images by Picasso and Otto Dix.
