In the s, a self-portrait was a more difficult feat — but most of what Francesca Woodman produced featured herself.
The two artists share themes of introspection and an obsession with self-portraiture that presents them as both vulnerable and elevated.
Both artists are loved by feminists for living an honest expression of their womanhood in their short lives. Pedicini It seems that this was her personal burden as well as her artistic gift.
