Lot Essay

‘Why are there no men? It’s because I think about women and their thoughts and ideas, and I suppose when I’m painting them I’m getting to be them, in a sense … I really love painting women. Their bodies, their clothes—it all interests me, whereas men really don’t that much, in a way’ (C. Joffe, quoted in interview with Stella McCartney, Interview Magazine, http:/www.interviewmagazine.com/fashion/chantal-joffe/#page2, [accessed 6 September 2014]).
