Find Your Happy Place

and it can’t be found

in food nor in drink … or sex

Victor Emile Prouvé, L’Opium, 1894, color lithograph.

The turn of the 19th century is thought of as a golden age in Paris, where women in billowing dresses and coy hats glided from theater to cabaret. The reality was bleaker, notes Cynthia Burlingham, co-curator of “Tea and Morphine: Women in Paris, 1880 to 1914,” a show of prints at the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles that reflects the extremes in women’s lives.

Georges de Feure, La source du mal [The Spring of Evil], 1894, color lithograph.
