We know she supported herself financially through sex work and flower sales. We know she posed for other artists, including Amedeo Modigliani and Kees van Dongen. We also know that when Picasso painted her, she was a pubescent girl.

The line between cinematic art and exploitation has rarely seemed finer and nervier, at least in recent memory, than in the French film "Innocence. As observers of the culture wars know well, Ms. Mann and Mr. Sturges have occupied central positions in debates involving artistic license and child pornography.
The subject's pale, naked body jumps out from the subdued, periwinkle backdrop. Her eyes are like darts and her face is stern, frustrated even — aged far beyond her pubescent body. She carries a basket full of bright red flowers.
Arbus commented about nudists, "they seem to wear more clothes than other people", noting that women still wish to adorn themselves with jewellery, and that shoes, socks and watches remain necessary practicalities when all other clothes are removed. Here a waitress in a nudist camp wears the essential signifiers of her role: apron, order pad and a neat hairband.

As I wandered through the Australian Pavilion that year, I recall experiencing an emotion conspicuously absent from previous visits; it was actual pride.
This cover story appeared in the magazine on Sept. While her mother and father conversed with friends and admirers, Jessie orbited the four rooms in her red dress, fielding questions from strangers eager to know more about her parents. Beneath a portrait of himself in the water, Emmett shrugged off the stares and expressed a typical teen-age frame of mind.
