Gustave Caillebotte - The Floor Scrapers (1875-6)

Original on top, later version below

"Despite the effort Caillebotte put into the painting, it was rejected by France’s most prestigious art exhibition, The Salon, in 1875. The depiction of working-class people in their trade, not fully clothed, shocked the jurors and was deemed a ‘vulgar subject matter.’ 

The images of the floor scrapers came to be associated with Degas’s paintings of washerwomen, also presented at the same exhibition and similarly scorned as ‘vulgar’”.

From writer/director Stuart Murdoch (lead singer of beloved indie pop group Belle & Sebastian) comes the most delightfully different musical of the year. Eve (Emily Browning) is a catastrophe—low on self-esteem but high on fantasy, especially when it comes to music.

Over the course of one Glasgow summer, she meets two similarly rootless souls: posh Cass (Hannah Murray of Game of Thrones) and fastidious James (Olly Alexander), and together they decide there’s only one thing to do: form a pop group.

Delightfully different is like stick it or st trinians where the story has no major romantic plot.

But it does seem pretty cute.
