Nan Goldin



Nan Goldin (b. 1953) is unquestionably one of the most influential photographers of the 20th century.

She began her career in the 1970s taking candid shots of her friends and lovers, characters often living on the margins of society. Like a private photo album, Goldin captures honest and candid moments from her private life granting viewers a glimpse into her captivating inner circle.

"Siobhan with Cat"  is a paradigm of Goldin’s depictions of life in New York from one of her most desirable eras of production. Here, Goldin captures her then-partner, sculptor Siobhan Liddell, mid-slumber as she tosses in a sunlit bed. 

Sunlight pours into the room, illuminating Siobhan's serene expression as she indulges in peace and comfort from under her sheets. An affectionate black cat nestled beside Siobhan completes this intimate domestic scene, exuding safety and warmth. 

This work is included in the collection at the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York.

Simultaneously spontaneous and familiar, "Siobhan with a Cat" epitomizes Goldin's mastery in imbuing her photographs with empathy, a sense of security, and a pronounced mutual trust between artist and subject.
