PageTurners: Strapless by Deborah Davis

Explores the story behind John Singer Sargent's "Madame X," a painting of twenty-three-year-old Amelie Gautreau which unleashed a storm of controversey when it was unveiled at the Paris Salon to show the young wife with one strap of her gown falling off her shoulder, and provides insights into the lives of the artist and his subject.
