Jenny Saville

At the Gagosian Gallery in London through the end of May, Jenny Saville is showing new artworks in a solo exhibition called Erota. In a recent article about this exhibition, Saville tells the Guardian that “It was having children that changed her work.” That’s not a statement you hear very often from an artist, especially not publicly. I would go see her paintings because I admire her boldness. Read more about how her work has changed in the article, “Jenny Saville: I used to be anti-beauty.” Below are two of her paintings: one from 1999 and another from 2015.
