Michael Allen Lowe
Les Agents Provocateur
54 x 40 in. INV #: MLowe-32956
Synopsis: This work is Lowe’s response to a nineteenth century
Fuseli drawing Girl Combing Her Hair, Watched by a Young Man, c.1810-20. Lowe exaggerates the voyeuristic tension within this original work by adding more figures and staging a much more titillating scene. The young girl combing her hair is replaced with two other figures from a different Fuseli drawing, Two
Lesbians Looking into a Mirror, c.1810-20. Another agent has been added, a fleshed-out male figure in red period clothing from Antoine Watteau’s Gilles and Four Other Characters, c.1719. Lowe has juxtaposed the foreground figures to frame the narrative, having been careful not to eclipse the unfurling erotic scene.
