Representations of Irrepresentability:
The Painted Portrait in the Twentieth-Century in the Works of
Edvard Munch, Francis Bacon, and Marlene Dumas
University of Amsterdam, 2020
This study proposes an understanding of the genre of painted portraiture in the twentieth-century that reaches beyond traditional notions of representation based on the Cartesian belief in a unique subjectivity. The study analyzes how this new type of portraiture functions in the works of Edvard Munch, Francis Bacon, and Marlene Dumas – emphasizing the novel ways these artists challenge the notion of representation as something reflecting an external, stable reality.
