CINDY SHERMAN "UNTITLED - PREGNANT WOMAN", 2002
Since the late 1970's Cindy Sherman has donned an array of personas, disguises and costumes to explore how woman are perceived, presented and judged in Western culture.
In this iconic and evocative work, released as a fundraiser for Planned Parenthood in New York City, Sherman becomes a pregnant urban woman.
The Montclair Art Musuem (which has an example of this work in their permanent collection) eloquently described this piece:
"It seems related to a recent series of color portraits of women confronted with middle age and their own distorted notions of beauty. With poignancy and humor, this woman seems to convey both a sense of misspent youth and the dangers of unplanned pregnancy-she simultaneously inhabits the roles of teenager and an older woman."
Sherman is one of the most successful living female artists with nearly 20 works that have achieved more than $1 million at auction.
This is a fantastic (and accessible) example of a Cindy Sherman photograph - a perfect entry-level piece to collecting one of the most influential and esteemed artists of the 20th century.
