Cindy Sherman Is All the Golden Girls

While the artist Cindy Sherman’s first new series of self portraits since 2012 draws upon her favorite subject of the past four decades – the cinema – the exhibit opening at Metro Pictures on Thursday also features CEOs, real estate moguls, and heiresses. Their common thread? They are all women of a certain age. “I wanted pretty pictures of older women, women who are trying too hard but succeeding, pulling off an extreme look,” said Sherman, 62. “They’ve maybe taken some wrong turns along the way, but they’re on the right track now. I identify with that.”
