Marlene Dumas (b. 1953) is a South African-born artist, whose figurative works have earned her a place among the most influential living painters.

Dumas has fearlessly depicted individuals or topics that are provocative, slightly unsettling...yet always intriguing and beautiful. She is known for her images of children, vulnerable women and both conflicted or victimized men.

This lithograph from the end of the 1980s represents a nude male body surroundings by angels. By playing with perspective and the proportionality of these figures, Dumas highlights only what is most important—the epicenter of emotion.

The relationship between art-historical models and pleasures of eroticism are constant themes in her work. This poetic and intimate artwork plays with the imagination of the viewers, their preconceptions and desires.

Dumas, currently based in Amsterdam, is one of the most collected living female artists. Her work can be found in collections such as the MoMA (NYC), the Tate (London), the Art Institute of Chicago and Centre Pompidou (Paris) to mention a few.
