The man's exposed ankle in.. Lawrence and Susanna Delagado in an interior (1968).. is more significant than it looks.. Cultural institutions in San Francisco continually search for new acquisitions.. Alexis Coe brings you the most important, often wondrous, sometimes bizarre, and occasionally downright vexing finds each week.. In one painting, a nude man poses as a reclining odalisque, a female slave in an Ottoman seraglio.. In another, a man's bare back meets the viewer as he directs his attention to five male companions.. Sylvia Sleigh (1916-2010) had no problem challenging art history in her paintings, exposing traditional themes as stereotypical at best, and degrading at worst.. Women had too often been painted as objects of desire in humiliating poses, Sleigh once said.. I don't mind the 'desire' part, it's the 'object' part that's not very nice..
