from A to Z
This can crop up where it
is least expected. At 276 boulevard Raspail, the first of three
medallions illustrating the ages of man on the front of an upper-class
residential building dating from 1905 (when the exposure of a woman’s ankle was
very osé) shows a man naked to the waist locked in passionate embrace with a
young woman with equally naked breasts. Happily, this appears to be all for a
good cause, since the next medallion shows the couple with a child. Others are less explicit!
