Frieze Masters: Virgin. Muse. Heroine.
Robilant+Voena is pleased to present an outstanding selection of female portraits from gold-grounds to Warhol for Frieze Masters 2021. Bold and heroic, proud and enigmatic—this selection of masterworks moves beyond simplistic labels, prompting viewers to reflect on evolving perceptions of womanhood.
Revisiting the theme of ‘Virgin. Muse. Heroine.’, the subject of an exhibition nearly 25 years ago at R+V’s predecessor at 38 Dover Street, the Walpole Gallery, the presentation extends beyond classical and biblical figures to include modern icons, interrogating changing views of women’s strength, sexuality, and standing.
