Under the Paint: The Controversial Nude Woman Playing Guitar

Here is a picture of a human being playing a guitar

We all know this painting because it's so damn beautiful, but did you know that there's a whole story behind it, under the paint, that goes like this?

Paulette didn't have a studio, so she drove up the hill and set up her easel and started painting this painting on July 4th, her country's independence day before it became a Mexican state.  She finished the painting and drove home, dropping the painting off to dry at her friends' studio because it wouldn't fit in her apartment.

And then, while it was being displayed in the Louvre, there was a heated controversy because the woman in the painting didn't have any clothes on, and this was controversial because human beings have the ugliest bodies in the whole animal kingdom, and while this ugliness merely annoys the other animals, it disgusts the human beings themselves.  Nobody can explain this self-loathing, but dolphins think it has something to do with humans being extremely out of touch with nature and just downright strange.

But human beings later evolved and got over their bodies.
