Tracey Emin's iconic art

Turner Prize nominee Tracey Emin is one of the most successful and acclaimed contemporary female British artists. Associated with Charles Saatchi and the Young Britist Artist movement in the 1990s, she attracted media controversy for the highly personal nature of her work (covering everything from an abortion at 16, to her past lovers), and provocative behaviour (including a swearing outburst on live television). As Stylist's cover star this week - and to celebrate her new solo exhibition at the Turner Contemporary in Margate - we look back at some of Emin's most iconic artwork.
