The whole point of free speech is not to make ideas exempt from criticism but to expose them to it.

Renoir: Newland indulges his fancy...

From LOOK, 11/6/1962. The painting immediately below was on the cover. I simply got all sentimental looking at these pictures and reading the story. Go here for the book excerpt and larger pictures. I found the book and ordered it on eBay.

That's a great quote to lead this post.
I like Renoir's paintings, especially his voluptuous nudes. Real women.

Voluptuous nudes are good.
