Robert Longo Cindy, from Men in the Cities, 2002 features the sharp profile figure of a young woman, dressed in a sleek black pencil skirt and high heels and a crisp white blouse. Her arms are raised with hands hooked, making a dynamic diagonal line from her elbow to waist, then from her waist to hips, knees, ending in her heels. The zig-zag shape made by her cleanly-dressed form gives the work a captivating rhythm, endowing the sharp-featured businesswoman with a lively flux.
Robert Longo’s Men in Cities series captures the well-dressed business professionals of New York, frozen in moments of rock-star dance poses, creating an intriguing juxtaposition of the rising yuppie culture of the 80s with the flummoxed and energetic spirit of the changing urban times. Originally conceived as a series of graphite and charcoal drawings based on photos Longo took, these fascinating black and white works are highly evocative and eye-catching.
Created in 2002, Robert Longo Cindy, from Men in the Cities is a lithograph. This work is hand-signed and dated by Robert Longo (New York,1953 - ) in pencil in the lower right and numbered from the edition of 120 in the lower left.
