Richard Lindner

Solitary III

About this artwork

Featuring a corseted and stocking-clad female, this painting is typical of Lindner’s work. However, the woman is not cast as an erotic figure – she has a colourful and fragmented torso and Lindner plays with scale by perching a small head on her body. The painting appears to show an interior scene, with the woman framed by a brightly-patterned length of fabric. This painting was exhibited in Lindner’s first British exhibition, at the Robert Fraser Gallery in London in June 1962. Painted in 1959, it was among a number of works which were reworked and adapted in 1962 specifically for the exhibition.
