$498.00

A 1980 signed serigraph print on paper by American feminist writer, theorist, artist and academic, Kate Millett (1934 - 2017). This work uses a painterly style to depict an abstracted nude female body. A poem by the artist adorns the lower back of the figure. Signed "Kate Millett The Farm," numbered 44/100, and dated 1980 along the lower right corner. The text of the poem reads:                                                                                
     Sophie lying in wait for me at the farm
     Spread ready to see, to draw, before I Kiss 
     before the ritual of sense becomes 
     the rite of sex it always 
     presaged, the viewing, the eros 
     of seeing.                                                                                                                               
Born in St. Paul, Minnesota, Millett is most well known as the author of the groundbreaking book Sexual Politics and as a influential figure in the women's liberation movement. However, she was also an accomplished and prolific artist who worked in a variety of mediums including sculpture, printmaking, painting, and performance art. In 1978, Millett founded a self-supporting art colony and farm for women in Poughkeepsie, New York where most of the work we currently have was created.
