    About The Work

    Andres Serrano's Piss Christ is one of the most controversial works of art produced over the past twenty years, ranking with Robert Mapplethorpe's homoerotic imagery and Barbara Kruger's politically charged photographs. Depicting a figure extended in a pose reminiscent of classical Greek sculpture but submerged in a murky jar of the artist's own urine, Piss Elegance is from the same series. The work is both grotesque and elegant, base and elevated, mired in bodily fluid and shadowed by a brilliantly lit and transcendent orange background.

    Serrano, who is a member of the board of the Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts (VLA), donated an edition of this photograph to the organization in celebration of its 35 years of service to the arts community.
