Three Mannequins
1953 Oil


On Hold

Diana Ferlini

Entitled Three Mannequins, this 1953 figurative oil on canvas painting is by Mid Century Surrealist, Diana Ferlini Duncan (1911-1983). Born in Switzerland of Italian parents she immigrated to the US as a child, later moving to Hollywood where she began a serious pursuit of painting as an adult. Like many of the female Surrealists post WWII, Ferlini’s themes include: a feminine perspective on the Nuclear Family; the isolation of the new American home; the objectification of the female body; and left-leaning points of view on war, immigration and social issues.
