Catalogue Note

“Herein lies the brilliance of the history portraits: even where her pictures offer a gleam of art historical recognition, Sherman has inserted her own interpretation of these ossified paintings, turning them into contemporary artifacts of a bygone era.”

Eva Respini, “Will the Real Cindy Sherman Please Stand Up?” in Exh. Cat., New York, Museum of Modern Art (and travelling), Cindy Sherman, 2012, pp. 43-44
