The only catalogue devoted to the paintings of Vanessa Beecroft. The talent of Vanessa Beecroft, well-known above all for her spectacular performances, documented by photographs and film clips, is explored in a figurative anthology devoted to her drawings, watercolours and acrylics. Men and above all women appear in portraits presenting them full-length, full-front and in profile: Vanessa Beecroft draws her inspiration from the characters of contemporary life. They echo the Renaissance and reveal the artist’s assimilation of Italian figurative art: images drawn from the present placed in a timeless setting.
