Paris News: ‘Ho Show A No Go

I’m pretty proud of that headline: worthy of Variety! The story: The Musée d’Orsay in Paris was unable to open on Tuesday for the first day of its much-discussed exhibition, “Splendour and Misery: Images of Prostitution 1850-1910,” due to a staff strike. The institution’s labor union voted to strike this morning at a general meeting, in protest against a plan to keep the Orsay open to the public seven days a week, starting in November. Details. Pictured is Henri Gervex‘s 1878 painting, “Rolla.” The museum may open later this week.
