Overview

Based on the artist's self-portraits and journals, Konz identifies a strategy of masking in Bashkirtseff's negotiation of her image and artistic career. In Konz's account, Bashkirtseff is both a traditional artist, whose self-portraits fit easily with other 19th- century Salon art, and a radical associated with the suffrage movement. Konz explores the artist as both the subject and object of representation and relates those representations to particular moments in Bashkirtseff's career. Konz teaches art history at Warren Wilson College in North Carolina. Annotation ©2006 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
