  • About the artwork

    For I am a Fantasy, Margaret Harrison's first exhibition with PayneShurvell in 2011, Margaret Harrison re-created, as a limited edition, her infamous image of Hugh Heffner dressed as a bunny girl. Using a photo of the original painting, which was stolen, Harrison re-created this iconic image for the 40th anniversary of that groundbreaking exhibition.

    Her outrageous first solo show in 1971, which featured works that “tread the fine line between irony, sexuality, trans-gender, transvestism, power, masculinity, objectification and exploitation”, was closed down after only one day by the police; who felt its contents were too controversial for exposure to the public. Highlights of the show included paintings such as ‘Captain America’, which depicted the American comic book icon, with large breasts, wearing stockings and stilettos, and an image of Hugh Heffner dressed as a Bunny Girl. The drawing, entitled ‘He’s only a Bunny Boy’, was stolen on the exhibition’s one open day; amongst rumours that the culprits may have been associated with Playboy.

Margaret Harrison

Born in: 1940

United Kingdom

Margaret Harrison (b. 1940) has work in many collections worldwide including seven paintings in The Tate collection, and is one of Britain’s best known feminist artists. Margaret is a pioneer of feminist art, whose peers and collaborators include Mary Kelly, Nancy Spero and Orlan. Margaret Harrison’s early work was influenced by British Pop art of the late 1950s. She creates drawings, paintings, and installations using images culled from the popular press and featuring iconic cultural figures including Valerie Solanas (Warhol’s would-be assassin) stamping on a Brillo box, Jennifer Lopez, Dolly Parton and of course, Hugh Heffner dressed as a Bunny Girl.
