Reviewing The Female Gaze is too difficult. I have only my male gaze. And so I gaze mutely at self-portraits, some fierce as Diane Edison. Other painters, such as Alice Neel, gaze at women pregnant with the eyes of the future.
The Female Gaze will be on view at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts until 7 April 2013. It’s a large sweeping show. William Luvass interviewed Alice Neel in Ezra Pound's Interview
, Unmuzzled OX 25, 1988.
