Courtney Love was a key figure in the 1990s grunge scene through her band Hole, as well as her brief and tumultuous marriage to the late Kurt Cobain. Captured against a blue backdrop, the textured brushstrokes mirror Love's wild, bleached blonde hair. Her overgrown fringe obscures her green and vacant eyes, paired with her hallmark red lipstck. For a long-standing fan of Courtney Love, or grunge culture, this portrait provides a nostalgic snapshot of quintessential 'kinderwhore' aesthetic.
