Ask Morgana 117: Miriam Briks

I have often marvelled at how tenderly women can paint women. Polish-American painter Miriam Briks (1957-) wields an impressionistic brush and often brings into her work that unintentional (?) hint of the erotic. In my opinion that is displayed here most of all in the two paintings, (4) and (7), where the viewer knows full well that a slight movement will allow the subject’s breasts to fall naturally into view.
