My Love We Won't

Niki de Saint Phalle

Contemporary Art

Throughout her long and prolific career Niki de Saint Phalle, a former cover model for Life magazine and French Vogue, investigated feminine archetypes and women’s societal roles. Her Nanas, bold, sexy sculptures of the proverbial everywoman, are playful and empowering, while the whimsical lithographs My Love We Won’t and Dear Diana offer humorous takes on girlhood obsessions. The savvy My Heart Belongs to Marcel pays homage not to Daddy (as in the popular song), but to Marcel Duchamp, the influential Dada artist and a personal friend.
