control of space

This is another sketch from “Women Power Protest” at the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery. As in the last sketch, the foreground shows  “La Feuille”, Germaine Richier’s response to two world wars.  Behind is Melanie Manchot‘s photographic and mixed media portrait of her mother.  By mishap, in my sketch, the proportions of the face are of a younger woman whereas in the original, Mrs Manchot has the gravitas of age.

    • You should 🙂 and so should I, but when I wrote the post I was tired. But the space was organised with striking self portraits (see prior post) and this portrait of an artist’s mother at right angles, with the gaunt statue in the middle. Excellent curation.
