Serge Lutens captures Japanese supermodel Sayako Yamaguchi in ‘Woman with Sculpture.’ The graceful figure contemplates a metallic mask in her outstretched palm, which is mirrored in her prominent, glinting jewelry and maquillage. Though snapped in the 1980s, Luten draws on avant-garde antecedents like Pablo Picasso, who incorporated traditional African masks, like those worn by the Fang people, into their artistic practice.
