Nude models protest in Paris

From Rodin and Courbet’s naked muses and lovers to Degas’s clinical study of the female form, the nude has always taken pride of place in French art.

But Paris is now being accused of showing such philistine ingratitude to its life models that scores went on strike yesterday, taking to the streets to pose naked in freezing temperatures to shame the state.

10 euros an hour for a professional life model? Shame, Parisians, shame.

Here at the University of Connecticut, nude modeling is one of the highest-paid student jobs. However, it’s not really an advertised position and we have only three or four different people.
