The bizarre but all too common transformation of the woman artist from a producer in her own right into a subject for representation forms a leitmotif in the history of art.

The lightnings danced before him sportively, And shone innocuous as the pale cold moon In the clear blue of his celestial eye.hartley coleridge

Everything happens as if gays and bisexuals under 18 didn't exist, or at least shouldn't exist.’Dr. Michel Dorais, Mort ou fif (Quotes)
