No identification is given for the four women portrayed here by Marlene Dumas. Can they be recognized as famous models, or are they randomly photographed women? That they are virgins, however, is emphatically indicated in the title. Whether this definition applies solely to the women’s virginal state or refers to their virtuousness is left up to the beholder by Dumas.
