Artist's description:

72"h x 60"w x 2"d

'Lavinia Forgotten' was inspired by William Shakespeare's tragedy Titus Andronicus set in Britain during the Roman occupation. Lavinia is the daughter of Titus and is brutalized by by son's of the Queen of the Guals, Tamora. Besides tying her up and violating her, they cut out her tongue and cut off her hands so she can't say who did it. I shot this image in 1978 in my studio on Siesta Key, Florida with a 4 x 5 view camera using Plus-X film. in 2010 I scanned the image and enlarged it to 72" x 60" in sections. The idea for the piece came by seeing that the model was gazing at her hand as if it were not even there.
