Matthew J. Palm, the Orlando Sentinel Arts Writer, reviews “Dangerous Women: Selections from the John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art,” a current exhibition at the Cornell Fine Arts Museum at Rollins College.
“Seductive women are potentially dangerous to men because they invoke the fear of women’s power over them,” writes feminist art historian Mary D. Garrard in the hardcover book that accompanies the exhibition.
The exhibition was curated by the Patricia & Phillip Frost Art Museum at Florida International University in Miami, the John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art in Sarasota and the Cornell. (Orlando Sentinel)
