The Female series of works from 1992/3 was formative for the way the artist saw herself or sees herself now in retrospect, and was decisive for what was to follow.

This book also features works from the Stripping Girls series from 2000 along with drawings, note books and collage material from 1972 to 1976. It is from this material that Marlene Dumas' potential and whole development into an internationally acclaimed painter can be most emphatically understood.

Today, Marlene Dumas stands for a merciless, anti-didactic but nevertheless feminist view both of the body and the psychological reality of female existence. This was already apparent and clearly visible in the early works, but is intensified in the series Female, in which she allows the individual face of the woman - later the individual body of the woman in the series Models - to blend into the crowd. By taking this step in the direction of representation and in using a group of individual pictures placed in a series, Dumas' artistic precision counters the standardisation and homogenisation of a daily involvement with images.
