Mark Lang's "Collaborative Fiction" imagines the drawing room in which Edouard Manet presents his famous masterpiece "Olympia" to his models, the nude Olympia and her handmaiden. After much historical equivocation, Lang unveils the truth about this much-acclaimed painting: never mind all the symbolism--Olympia was definitely a bit fuller-bodied in real life. This painting delivers a clever commentary on artistic license and its pervasive role in the history of figurative painting.
