Catalogue Note

"I was definitely trying to provoke in those pictures. But it was more about provoking men into reassessing their assumptions when they look at pictures of women. I was thinking about vulnerability in a way that would make a male viewer feel uncomfortable - like seeing your daughter in a vulnerable state."
Cindy Sherman (Exh. Cat., New York, The Museum of Modern Art, Cindy Sherman, 2012, p. 33)

Eugène Delacroix, Odalisquecirca 1825
