Feminine Sensitivity early XXth

image principale

At the beginning of the XXth century, female artists attract the attention by focusing their art on their own reproductive life, revealing the sufferings in their childhood, their difficult relations with their parents, and often their infertility.

Frida Kahlo initiated the move, devastated by her incapacity to give birth, followed by Louise Bourgeois, Niki De Saint Phalle, Orlan, and finally Alison Lapper, severely handicaped by birth, herself an artist, who had a giant statue of herself pregnant made by her friend Mark Quinn and exhibited on one of the pillars of Trafalgar Square in London.
