Leeds College of Art show puts female twist on classic cowboys

An exhibition of paintings which reimagines famous film cowboys such as Clint Eastwood and John Wayne as women has opened.

The show at Leeds College of Art features a selection of work by artist Felice House.

'Re/Western' includes seven large scale portraits taken from iconic Westerns.

A spokesperson for the college said the exhibition raises questions around "gender stereotypes and the access of women to power".

Felice House is an American artist who lives and works in Texas.
