Sold as a pair with 7954g
R. C. Gorman is better known for his images of colorful and elegant Navajo figures. This pair of prints, however, offers a view into his personal life. The pair of nude figures in this pendant pair are of his boyfriend Bart, and himself represented as the woman. Thus, the erotic nature of the images shows an insight not just into his sexuality, but also into his conception of gender.
