This picture shows a detail of a Paul McCarthy's work, taken at MoMA, NYC, 2009.

Jean Genet was a French writer.
Querelle de Brest (Querelle of Brest, in English) was first published in 1953.

In 1982, Rainer Werner Fassbinder released Querelle (his final film), based on Querelle de Brest.

"There is a close relationship between flowers and convicts. The fragility and delicacy of the former are of the same nature as the brutal insensitivity of the latter."
