Christina Ramberg

Christina Ramberg (21 August 1946–1995) was an American painter united with the Chicago Imagists, a outfit of representational artists who attended the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in the late 1960s. The Imagists took their cues from Surrealism, Pop, and West Coast underground comic illustration, and were "enchanted in imitation of the abject status of sex in post-war America, particularly as writ on the female form." Ramberg is best known for her depictions of partial female bodies (heads, torsos, hands) forced into assent by undergarments and imagined in odd, erotic predicaments.
