Description

As a self-taught artist, Claire Milbrath often looks to art history for iconographic inspiration, celebrating the naive quality of her own techniques such as perspective and shadow. This work has a clear link to Manet, but we also see touches of Matisse in the colour scheme and the freedom of the line making. Sexuality is also present in this seemingly innocent work, as the characters read about BDSM or other literature that one would typically not see in public.
