Form

1920. Marble. Room B

In the nineteenth century, art avoided representing the female genitals. With few exceptions, they constituted an invisible taboo that artists used various artifices to conceal. Inurria’s torso, meanwhile uses the extreme fragmentation of the female body, here deprived of identity and verging on the abstract, as a metaphor for the alienation suffered by women at that time.
