A map and an exhibition of old master studies.
In the following map all the rooms in the National Gallery displaying paintings showing or implying rape or other sexualized violence are marked red. Below that you’ll find a list of all the paintings in question, and each painting’s reason for inclusion. This list derives from my personal observation on repeated visits during the fall of 2016–unfortunately I cannot guarantee that it is complete.
My monotypes based on these paintings are on show at Lima Zulu
