Lot Essay

‘When asked... in 2006 if she could live with one work of art, what would it be, Genzken replied, ‘Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa... because she’s considered the most beautiful woman in the world, although she’s actually a man as well as a woman – a disguised self-portrait of Leonardo’ (J. Grove, ‘Isa Genzken’s Homage to Herself’, in S. Breitwieser, L. Hoptman, M. Darling, J. Grove (eds.), Isa Genzken: A Retrospective, exh. cat., Museum of Modern Art, New York, 2014, p. 299).
