Bridal Holden Theme: At Ease

Artist: Margaret DODD
Birth/Death: 1941

Title: Bridal Holden

Credit Line: On loan from a private collection to the Art Gallery of South Australia, Adelaide.

Bridal Holden is Dodd’s vision of a virginal, innocent bride, complete with rosebuds, veil and satin under-garments. It is the ultimate absurdity of unity, displayed between a masculine Australian icon and feminine spectacle, achieved fully in the ritual of marriage.
