Fifty years after Maina-Miriam Munsky’s first solo exhibition in 1971, Galerie Poll is showing the artist’s early work from the 1960s for the first time in an exhibition titled Gravidity. In 1971, when Galerie Poll began to represent Munksy, her pictures and drawings of the female body had already begun to revolve around subjects such as fertility, pregnancy, and birth, though they still had a surreal cast. It was not until the 1970s that she found her hyperrealist style, schooled in New Objectivity, with which she has since become known.
