|A fact from Olympia (painting) appeared on Wikipedia's Main Page in the Did you know? column on 11 February 2013.|
Not a good article. Especially:
- It is not a fact that the painting is of a prostitute: that is an art-critical interpretation, and requires reliable reference. As for the black cat, that is stretching the interpretation rather a long way.
- It is shameful to say of her "She was not a good artist". She was indeed a good artist, and English wiki has an article which shows that she exhibited at the Paris Salon six times. This error (no doubt by someone long gone) would also have been avoided if someone had done their homework.
