The work of American artist Amy Bessone draws on representations of the female figure throughout history. Described by Bessone as “feminine archetypes”, these subjects form a central component of her paintings and sculptures, and reflect a range of sources, including ancient marble nudes, Renaissance reliefs and personal souvenirs.

Bessone was born in 1970 in New York, USA. She studied in Paris and Amsterdam from 1989-1995, earning a BFA from Parsons Paris School of Design, and received further education at De Ateliers, Amsterdam, The Netherlands. The artist lives and works in Los Angeles, California,
