Lacan, the last owner of Courbet's The Origin of the World, loved the paintingso much that he couldn't even bring himself to look at it. Instead, he hid itbehind a "safer" painting.The Chinese called it the "valley of the roses" (watch out for the thorns!),the Persians, the "honey-pot" (watch out for the bees!), and the Greeks, "themound of Venus" (mind the steep climb!); to each era its fantasies and itstheories about the feminine mystique. Then there are the testimonies of poets,painters, and even of some famous psychiatrists. The Origin of the World is awork of art only suitable for lovers of intrigue.
