Artwork Title: The Bell Jar - Artist Name: Sylvia Plath

The Bell Jar

Sylvia Plath, 1963

Plath’s semi-autobiographical work, The Bell-Jar, is seemingly referenced in one of the drawings by the same name.... The drawing depicts a pair of red patent shoes... that recall a passage in the book, “I had removed my patent leather shoes after a while, for they foundered badly in the sand. It pleased me to think they would be perched there on a silver log pointing out to sea, like a sort of soul-compass after I was dead.” https://chloenelkin.wordpress.com/category/mayor-gallery/
