1958-1981
FROM PORTRAIT OF A REPUTATION (HANDPRINTS)

Provenance

Gift of the photographer to the present owner, 1970s, when students together at the Rhode Island School of Design

Literature

Chris Townsend, Francesca Woodman (London and New York, 2006), p. 237, reversed

Catalogue Note

In the 1970s, Francesca Woodman created six unique sequenced narrative books of photographs, among them Portrait of a Reputation.  The image offered here is a reverse-printed version of the fifth and final image in the sequence, which Chris Townsend describes as 'a powerful allegory of the experience of being touched, as if being stained by that act' (Francesca Woodman, p. 236).
