Peter Saul

Prehistoric Women, 2011

Acrylic on canvas
198 × 229 cm

In Peter Saul’s works formal experimentation is never far removed from social commentary, and the broad scope of history painting is bound up with emotional responses to the specific day-to-day realities:

“In “Prehistoric Women,” the two women show a surprisingly modern attitude. First, they “muscled up,” did a lot of heavy exercising to develop the tremendous muscles needed to wield the stone axes they’re using to dispatch their unwanted husbands.” – Peter Saul
