Artist Vanessa Beecroft has treated the will to classicism in its diaspora of mass culture through a re-deployment of the fashion industrys strategic organization of idealized beauty, itself inherited in large part from high art, and in her performances, returned. Models were stripped naked and arranged in art spaces with the rigid planarity of the most exacting quattrocentro painting.
