Victoria's Secret

This 1995 multimedia work entitled Victoria's Secret  by Robin Kahn hangs in the National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington, DC. 

Ingrid Schaffner describes this work this way:
“…Victoria’s Secret, 1995, where the masked woman reappears, this time superimposed with the ghost of another woman; the latter figure holds, mirrorlike, a portrait of a man, whose image reflects either a true love or true ambition.Ingrid Schaffner
