Artist: jenny Saville

Student’s Name




Jenny is contemporary painter

Regarded a feminist genius

Reinvented self portrait

She has made the modern self-portrait unrestricted in vision and form.

Jenny Saville was born in 1970 in Cambridge, England. She received her B.A. Honors Fine Art from Glasgow School of Art, Scotland.  At the end of Saville’s postgraduate education, the leading British art collector, Charles Saatchi, purchased her senior show. He offered her an 18-month contract, supporting her while she created new works to be exhibited in the Saatchi Gallery in London. She is among the women artists skilled in painting. Many people lauds her as a feminist genius as a result of her paintings usually representing female bodies. She broke away from the normal creation of a portrait and adopted her own unique style.



Seville’s Self portrait

This is a self portrait painted by Seville in 1992. The painting depicts her real face. The Medium she used was oil on board. The painting is categorized under the Modern Art movement.



Her work stands apart from the other artists .

Known for her figurative approach.

Exhibit otherness in her portraits.

Has followed her own path.

Jenny Saville is a contemporary British painter whose highly stylized nude portraiture of voluminous bodies has brought her international acclaim. She boldly claims that she paint flesh because she is human. This is one of her paintings, known as “branded.” The painting depicts a body of a woman with deformed body. She uses her own face on top of her enlarged deformed body. The body is obese and raw depicting in details the imperfection. Words such as “delicate,” ‘supportive,’ ‘irrational,’ ‘decorative,’ and ‘petite’’ are inscribed on the body. The words could be an internal dialogue in her mind. The body faces the viewer with purpose and stature and does not conform to the notion of a passive object to be viewed, but is instead very in-your-face. “Saville’s work interrogates our perception of the female body in challenging ways. To use the self in this way is to come full circle in the questioning of fixed identity and the body”


Human Body Representation

Jenny Saville paints female nudes in extreme states of grotesque exaggeration.

Human objects resembles butchered animals.

Both are grotesque and objectified

Saville has dedicated her career to traditional figurative oil painting. Her painterly style has been compared to that of Lucian Freud and Rubens. Her paintings are usually much larger than life size. They are strongly pigmented and give a highly sensual impression of the surface of the skin as well as the mass of the body. She sometimes adds marks onto the body. She paints female nudes in extreme states of grotesque exaggeration. Her subjects are deformed, obese, brutalized, or mutilated. She is clearly working against the male-dominated history of idealized portraits of women. She painted female bodies representing butchered animals.


Representation of Human Body

Human body is represented as:





This is also another painting by Seville. The painting is called the hybrid. It depicts a totally deformed female nude body. In many paintings, she uses her own head and face and the body of an obese woman. Jenny Saville has visualized her concern about the tyranny wielded over women by the fantasy of the perfect body in a series of larger-than-life-size nudes overlain with the kind of marks left by plastic surgeons in deforming the body. Her innovation was to use her own distorted and enlarged nude bodyThe fact that most of her paintings and photographs depict the body covering the entirety of the canvas, and sometimes spilling over the edges, adds to the drama of viewing the human body’s flesh and imperfections.



Human body resembling a butchered animal.

This painting is known as the Torso and was done in 2004 by Seville. The painting represents a human body fused with butchered animal body. The image shows a subject that has been severely mutilated.


This is another one of Saville’s paintings, depicting a woman whose body is painted with contour lines. The painting is named the plan.”The woman is staring directly at the viewer. The contour lines are made with marks a similar to those of a surgeon’s pen. The painting speaks a lot about the female body, which society is so quick to modify to fit it’s ideals of perfection. “In this painting Saville combines the image of a female subject’s body with the suggestion of landscape. The lines painted on the body’s surface resemble contour markings on maps, while also suggesting areas of the body’s topography indicated for liposuction, the surgical removal of unwanted fat. In this mapping of the body as an area of problematic terrain a relationship is set up between perceptions of the natural and the planned.


This is another of Seville’s painting known as the Fulcrum. The painting was done in 1999 with oil on canvas as the medium. The painting depicts deformed female bodies lying on top of another.



working against the male-dominated history of idealized portraits of women.

She has little interest in portraits in the traditional sense.

Mainly focus on flesh itself and the many ways it can appear.

It was the idea of how bodies can be changed, and the stories of why they had changed, that fascinated her. But her women subjects do not look like the idealized women, painted by men, who have dominated the nude for almost all of art history.



Challenges the male fantasy of the perfect body. 

This painting named Strategy was done in 1993/1994 by Seville. The painting breaks away from the stereotypical way of presenting women as petite objects for men’s fulfillment and desires arising from perfect female bodies. Seville depicts the female body in a deformed and grotesque form that is not desirable to look at first glance. She goes against the stereotypical male fantasy of perfect body.


The first painting on the left is called the Prop. The painting was done in 1993 using oil on canvas. The painting depicts a woman sitting naked with her voluptuous showing deformations. The second painting on the right is called Propped and was done in 1992. It also depicts a woman sitting naked with her obese voluptuous body flaunted. Again, Seville denies men their fantasy for perfect female bodies through this painting. She creates an impression that women should be embraced in all forms and shapes and not just the perfect petite form desired by men.


Relation to Theme

Seville breaks from the tradition gender and body presentation

She depicts pain and violence in females

She also paints nude transsexuals

Contemporary representation of gender and body in visual arts still glorifies the perfect female body fantasy. Seville breaks away from the norm to unveil the injustices done to women by the society in form of demands to have the perfect bodies. She stresses on the need to embrace the women despite their body sizes and shapes.


The painting known as Passage was done in 2004. Seville represents a transgender body as depicted in a painting. She claimed to have been searching for a body that was between genders, neither female nor male. With this painting, she explored that idea a little in Matrix. The idea of floating gender that is not fixed. The transvestite she worked on has a natural penis and false silicone breasts. Such a body could not have existed in painting some year s ago. She toyed around with a kind of contemporary architecture if the transgender body. She wanted to paint a visual passage through gender – a sort of gender landscape.
