Tang Lady Chanel Bag

Tang Lady Chanel Bag

Nina Kuo. Tang Lady Chanel Bag, 2007.

Description:
Part of the "Chanel Chinoiserie" series, this painting shows the preciousness and glitz that women are sometimes associated with, while revealing that some ladies cheat in attaining that image by purchasing knock off designer copies. A contemporary Tang Scholarly Lady wears Chanel knock-offs and buys Chanel perfumes to demonstrate the convergence of different values placed upon women. This work was included in an essay by Eleanor Heartey.
