Carlyn Beccia illustrates Royalty’s ugly rumors for Houghton-Miflin

Marie Antoinette never said her infamous line ‘Let them eat cake.’ Think Anne Boleyn had six fingers? One of her biographers said she had ‘an extra nail.’ A nail isn’t a finger. There’s more, much more.

Sarah Maple

Notes from Sarah Maple’s press release: “23-year-old Sarah Maple is about to become the next leading voice of the international contemporary art scene; her tongue in-cheek, witty paintings and self portraits introduce a fresh and intimate take on today’s world cleverly tackling some of its most complex issues such as religion, politics and the societal role of women.” She aims to give people food for thought, through comedic ways. Also stated: “Inspiration for Maple’s work originated from her being brought up in the UK as a practising Muslim, with parents of mixed religious and cultural backgrounds. Understandably, issues of identity have early on set the background for her artwork.” In my opinion, some of her work appears to have influences of Cindy Sherman’s photography, self-portraits characterizing women in various roles. Always very interesting to set up and also see the end result in photo! -Adriana de Barros, from Scene 360
