Marie Antointte painting by Cathy Lomax

The painting Marie Antoinette / Kirsten Dunst 2 from the Marie Antoinette series is featured on the cover of Anna Backman Rogers's book Sophia Coppola: The Politics of Visual Pleasure.

Amazon says of the book: 'Drawing on insights from feminist philosophy and psychology, the author here takes an original approach to Coppola, exploring vital themes from the subversion of patriarchy in The Virgin Suicides to the "female gothic" in The Beguiled. As Rogers shows, far from endorsing a facile and depoliticized postfeminism, Coppola's films instead deploy beguilement, mood, and pleasure in the service of a robustly feminist philosophy.'
