A woman from the magazine page
Once you lay eyes on this modern art painting, it carries you back to the very beginning of the century when luxury and sophistication coexisted with frivolity and epatage. And the picture clearly demonstrates that. Designed as an opening of a fashion brochure, it portrays a typical femme fatale parading in her best outfit. Her clothes, accessories and the way she bears herself allows us to suggest she is some kind of a social butterfly – rich, aristocratic, probably the wife of an important person or an heiress of a local mogul. In her long fur coat with a splendid cheetah neckpiece, high-heeled shoes, elegant gloves and fancy hat, she seems to have come off the magazine page. We can’t see her face, because it’s covered by an elegant printed umbrella, but we have no doubt it is as beautiful and well-groomed as her wardrobe. This is a woman who knows her worth and isn’t ashamed of showing it. She is used to rapturous gazes and admiring whispers behind her back. But she remains cold and aloof because real ladies only fall for real men. Whether this image inspires you, entertains you or gives you a sweet jolt of nostalgia, it is great to have around.
