Featured Edition of the week

Tracey Emin, Sitting with You, 2013 Etching, 305mm x 230mm, $2,440

Featured in the November 2013 issue of Harper’s Bazaar Art

British artist known for making works that convey experiences and events from her own life, Emin’s stories are revealed with a raw openness. “The nude,” as the great critic Kenneth Clark once pointed out, “is not only an art of beauty but of pathos.” Emin bares her soul by portraying humiliations of the flesh.
