Mina and the (Fe)male Gaze

“A woman’s eye might look with empathy upon the female figure of their studies, while male artists more often saw them as set pieces that might or might not arouse their desires. A man might see the model as his possession, while a woman was more likely to see her as someone like herself. Such issues…were ones to which she would return a decade later in both poetry and painting” (Carolyn Burke, Becoming Modern: The Life of Mina Loy , 95).
