This is another one of Kruger’s classic red, white and black pieces. It is the outline of a woman’s body, pinned down and immobile. It is a representation of women’s place in society, more specifically, a patriarchal society (“Barbara Kruger Biography, Art and Analysis of Works”). This brings me back to our first reading, Two Or Three Things I Know For Sure, where Dorothy Allison gives a vivid description of the women in her life. She considers them an after thought, even background noise, she writes, “The women of my family were measured, manlike, sexless, bearers of babies, burdens and contempt” (Allison 33).
In the Loge, by Mary Cassatt is a very interesting piece of artwork. The artwork depicts what appears to be a woman, viewing a play or some kind of entertainment inside of a theater. The woman’s gaze is set on whatever the entertainment in front of her is.

Samantha Garcia Nile Hartline ENG 105 USE 12187 26 September 2015 Three Dancing Figures, Version C “I think public art (unless there is a specific political or ideological message) should make people feel comfortable, and brighten their environment.” As I walked through the Pappajohn Sculpture Park, there were a few sculptures that I found appealing but the one sculpture that caught my eye in particular was the Untitled Three Dancing Figures. The sculpture itself has an interesting design in which all of the Dancing Figures are touching each other and it seems as if the figures are marching and dancing in order. The sculpture was designed by Keith Haring in 1989, but was not assembled until 2009 when John and Mary Pappajohn commissioned

Historically, being a woman meant being seen as less than that of a man. For centuries in Western culture being a woman immediately devalued and discredited hard work. Women have been making art since the beginning of time. These important works have not been recorded nor preserved because women have been seen as second-class citizens. Women’s art has been seen as “arts and crafts” instead of the fine art that it was meant to be.
Visual Arts HL Provocation and vision of women through art Provocation has had a lot of influence through the history of art, creating various scandals, shining light on critical issues in the world and acting as a movement and progression in the way the audience sees things. According to Oxford dictionary, the definition of provocation is a certain action or speech that makes someone angry, or the action of arousing sexual desire or interest, especially on purpose.
