Édouard Manet’s ‘The Luncheon on the Grass’ was an affront to the propriety of the late eighteen-hundreds, as it portrayed a naked woman casually lunching with two fully dressed men. The painting inspired later artists to give their own interpretation of what we currently call a picnic. Today, the human body has been exploited by all means of communication, hence, it seems outrageous to hand back the emphasis to elementary items.
