This linen handkerchief is embroidered with the artist's signature. It was made by Barbara Bloom for her exhibition The Reign of Narcissism (1989). Perhaps Bloom's most celebrated piece, The Reign of Narcissim recreates a Neoclassical period room in an imaginary museum dedicated to the artist's self image. Bloom's own likeness, which is emblazoned on all of the objects in the collection, including: Greek-style sculptures and bas-reliefs, tea sets and chocolates displayed in vitrines, a tombstone and a published series of books entitled The Complete Works of Barbara Bloom (1989), and all are displayed in a hexagonal parlor-style room that evoke the private museum. A parody of the monomania that can consume collectors, this work is, for the artist, "less related to Freudian narcissism than it is to the narcissistic aspects of artmaking and collecting." Edition of 25
