Win Lilianne Milgrom’s ‘L’Origine: The Secret Life of the World’s Most Erotic Masterpiece’

Bonjour Paris has teamed up with author Lilianne Milgrom to offer one lucky reader a copy of her newly published book, L’Origine: The secret life of the world’s most erotic masterpiece.

Hold onto your berets! L’Origine traces the extraordinary, clandestine odyssey of an iconic, 19th-century painting that shook up the author’s world and continues to scandalize all who set eyes upon it. Lilianne Milgrom brings a fresh, feminine perspective to Gustave Courbet’s infamous portrait of a woman’s most intimate possession.

Audaciously entitled L’Origine du monde (The Origin of the World), the painting draws millions of visitors to Paris’ Orsay Museum every year. But L’Origine is more than a riveting romp through history – it also reflects society’s historically ambiguous attitude towards a woman’s body.
