    Ch. 3- Modernity 1. “ The gaze, whether institutional or individual, thus helps to establish relationships of power” (Sturken and Cartwright 111). I chose this quote because of the fact that it is true. Once the gaze was virtually absent from descriptions of art, except as an arrow in the quiver of ekphrasis.

Such historical and cultural variations oppose the essentialist view that masculinity, femininity and gender roles are biologically...
