Viewed almost as an intimate tiny sketchbook of herself, a visual diary. This edition is a great example of Emin's radical painting style which has been influenced by Expressionism. It showcases a universal feeling; raw and bittersweet emotions, which are Emin’s constant subject surrounded around the idea of love, loss, intimacy, and longing.
In making herself the subject of her work, and concentrating intensely on figuration, Emin creates bridges with the rich art-historical tradition of the female figure and female nudes. She shows strong emotive force in these pictures, as seen for example in the work of male painters Munch and Schiele, which Emin admires and studied throughout her artistic oeuvre.
"The title says it all. All women think they are related to Cleopatra or Nefertiti and I am ashamed about it." —Tracey Emin
