Description


After Ernest Normand I start a new series of 10 images, in no real order this time. it is a question of drawing up each time a portrait of a woman, strong enough to affirm her identity in a world dominated by patriarchy. These women of different eras, origins, and different ages continue to fight for their visibility, despite prejudice. My list is not exhaustive, there is so much to say; likewise, the dominant male gaze remains on the lookout under the presence, in each image, of an invisible man, who retains a share of power. Finally, each painting chosen places this fight for better visibility for women in a history of art largely shaped by men. Thank you for the view and your comments.

Pas évident pour elle de peindre l'homme invisible !

J'aime l'idée que le futur tableau se résume aux deux traces d'ombres qui se projettent sur la toile vierge. L'ironie ou la prise de risques de la situation est accentuée par le tableau à l'arrière plan qui représente une version de Pygmalion et Galatée.:)

Female painters stand behind the shadows of male domination, you swhow it very well.

Intriguing; love the idea of a life study of the invisible man being just a shadow of the glasses!

I also like the idea that to be invisible (at least in some versions) the man has to be naked. This female painter therefore executed a male nude, contrary to a long tradition, even if her talent must then lack visibility.

Très amusante cette idée de l'homme nu!

I am a bit puzzled by the reference to the Ernest Normand picture as it depicts Pygmalion who falls in love with his perfectly realized sculpture of a woman. Perhaps our woman painter finds the ideal man to be invisible? It certainly amuses me that the painter has no more than a pair of glasses to work with. =)

you're right, but let's not forget that the tragedy of Pygmalion is that he does not find a woman beautiful enough in his eyes and that he sculpts an ideal synthesis in his eyes. He then despairs that this ideal cannot be alive, fortunately Aphrodite intervenes. You can only see well with the heart, the essential is invisible to the eyes.” wrote Saint-Exupéry in the Little Prince
