Vintage magazines and books multi layered hand cut collage on a painted black acrylic ground on stretched canvas on a light weight wooden frame complete with 'd' rings and hanging cord - ready to hang

Description

Ready to hang canvas; 92cmx 122cm Olympia (after Manet) #2, is original and vintage paper, hand cut collage on a black acrylic painted ground. Referencing Manet's Olympia this 1960s woman defiantly meets the gaze of the viewer, (although perhaps to a degree diffidently) she still however
meets the viewers gaze. Surrounded by and lifted out of the domesticity of a woman's life in the 1960's with the lushness of a Flemish painting. Perhaps the sum of us?
