Scarf #39 is a silkscreen with handcoloring. I first encountered this image in a book of Athenian Red Figure vases of the Archaic period and made some paintings related to it in 2013. I was really thrilled to see the Nancy Spero show at PS1 recently and only then realized that Spero had also included this figure in her repertoire. The image on the scarf has been slightly modified from the vase painting to more closely resemble Spero’s. She seems to have changed the figure’s coiffure a little and also elongated the torso so that the pose is even more wheel-like, perhaps eternally circling around pleasure.
