Regardless of the outrage that led to the photograph's removal, the barrage of images like this one continues to demonstrate that pop culture, art and fashion are not only riddled with racism, but dependent on it. In the past year alone the internet has exploded with similar debates about Miley Cyrus "twerking" with black women as props to her act, and Lily Allen using black women's bodies in a music video to prove a "satirical" point about something or another. What becomes particularly dangerous in these debates, however, is the insistence that art has a distinct right to offend, regardless of who or why it offends. The designer of the chair, the Norwegian artist Bjarne Melgaard , is a prime example.

The dummy is laying on her back with her knees bent and a cushion, which Zhukova is sitting on, is balanced on her bottom. Her neck is propped up off the floor uncomfortably, as if she is straining to look at her master, and her amble, naked bosom is pressed provocatively against her body. Zhukova, right, is the wife of Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich, left Cropped version: Dasha Zhukova is the editor-in-chief of Garage magazine, pictured, which focused on art and fashion.
An intriguing tool fascinating for the painter, this medium occupies a place apart in all of his work. He is at the source of a deep reflection on artistic truth in the face of photographic realism. Far from seeing photography as a potential rival to painting, Delacroix took a keen interest in the development of this new medium, following its technical progress with sufficient curiosity to become a founding member of the Heliographic Society in He amassed a considerable photographic collection-of frescoes by Raphael, paintings by Rubens, and cathedral sculptures. We know from his diary and letters that he sometimes used these photographs to practice drawing when no live models were available.
