Half of the fun of looking critically at images and texts like the ones you’ve seen here is discussing with others what you see. Here is your chance to talk back to the images in the juxtaposition I’ve created and to start up a conversation with others looking at them (including me).
What stands out to you? What do you want to be sure to point out to others? What bothers you about the images or groupings? How do you think the historical and contemporary images in this grouping relate to each other? Or do you think they do at all? What questions do you have that you’d like someone else to comment on or try answering? What do the questions I posted next to the juxtaposition prompt you to see there and write here? What do these images and this juxtaposition say to you about Figuring women?
Feel free to upload an image or file that you feel adds to the conversation you’d like to begin here about these images.

All that cloth and it just blows off, slips down or clings. Only "Therese" looks like she will retain her modesty--but then maybe she gets pretty wild with that harp! I just get tired of the classical peek-a-boo show that so many artists embrace.
