From the publisher: "Jenny Saville is one of the most prominent of the yBa (Young British artists), the avant-garde British artistic movement of the last decades. Saville is the artist who has most inspired the feminist-led smashing of the roles of muse, model and lover historically assigned to women in the world of art. All her recent production is centralized on the thematic female and transsexual bodies, challenging the stereotyped image[s] that we have of the female and male body."
