Betye Saar: Black Girl's Window

We have run out of stock for this item.

In 1969 Betye Saar created Black Girl’s Window, assembling found images and fragments of her own prints into a discarded frame. At center, an arresting painted image of a girl confronts the viewer through parted curtains, her hands pressed against a pane of glass. For Black Girl’s Window, which bridges Saar’s best-known sculptural works and her less-often-seen works on paper, the artist draws on supernatural systems, political imagery, and her personal history to create an object of astonishing resonance. An essay by Esther Adler and Christophe Cherix explores Saar’s early career, gives insight into her sources, and brings the artist’s voice into illuminating this exceptional work.
