Marisa Portolese – In the Studio with Notman

Montreal artist Marisa Portolese talks about a series of portraits inspired by her research into the Notman collection. For a number of years, Portolese has been making portraits of women from a feminist perspective. As a participant in the artist-in-residence program, she has sought to explore the studio tradition and its decors, paying particular attention to the backdrops and accessories used by Notman in photographing female subjects.
