Abstract:

As a tribute to the legacy of her mentor, Chicago shares some of her memories of their encounters in her introduction to Fragments from the Delta of Venus, a collection of twenty artworks pairing Chicago’s sensuous watercolor images with extremely evocative phrases from Nin’s famed collection of stories. The book promises to be a breakthrough in the history of erotic art, which—for centuries—has belonged almost exclusively to male artists and a male audience. Fragments from the Delta of Venus might be said to be a continuation of Chicago and Nin’s earlier dialogue, illuminating, in both images and words, the powerful fantasies and desires of the female mind.
