Summary expansion
Portraits of African American women are overprinted with iconic images of white women of art history, including a Madonna and Child, a Rembrandt woman, Botticelli's Venus, and Alice in Wonderland as drawn by John Tenniel. The figures also represent the various ages of a woman, from infant (Madonna and Child), young girl (Alice), mature woman (Botticelli's Venus), and old woman (Rembrandt's "83-year old woman")
