Ana Mendieta - Untitled (Self Portrait with Blood), 1973

"In Untitled (Self Portrait with Blood), Mendieta splattered her face and upper torso in blood for a series of six photographic self-portraits. Her desire to explore violence against women had been triggered in part by a rape and murder case during her time at the University of Iowa, but in this series she is anything but a victim: defiant, engaged and wholly addressing the viewer’s gaze."
