Women in Red

Strong, Independent women through history painted from many different cultures. Red for me symbolizes power, which is unique among historical paintings.

In this first painting, it depicts a young mother taking care of her infant. I chose this because it's one of the only paintings that I found with a women holding a child.
In this painting, the woman is playing with the beads on her dress, which is something I would most definitely do. She seems empowered by her broad shoulders.
This painting slightly scares me because the woman being depicted looks like George Washington in the face. This was one of the older paintings that I found with a female having long hair.
Not knowing a lot about this painting, if I had to guess that she was a prostitute judging the lighting and the way that she's posing. There's also something mysterious about her facial expression.
I chose this painting specifically because the painter was a woman (not common for the time period) and it's located in the National Museum of Women in the Arts.
When I first saw this painting I thought of Ann-Hathaway and the liberated female movement of the early 1900's. This woman looks like a scholar or at least learned.
I wanted to incorporate different cultures, so I added in a Japanese Ink panel of a women wearing a stunning kimono playing with her cat.
I loved how this painting had movement in her cloths as if the wind from the outside caught wisp of her dress. Likewise, It's the only piece of art that I chose painted outside for that very reason.
Women in painting: "Oh, you don't want me to drink this? Well screw you buddy, I'm drinking it."
Personally, this woman doesn't look anything higher than middle class. I chose this painting for that reason. You typically don't see women in a portrait unless they have a lot of money to pay for it.
Her side profile is so gorgeous I couldn't pass up adding her to my collection.
I added this painting since it's a great example of empressionism. There's not a lot of detail to the girl but you can easily see what's going on with few brush strokes.
The fact that the artist gave the female in this painting enough respect to actually name her is great. Gabrielle, whats a beautiful and suiting name? You know it's good if it's at Harvard Art Museum.
The only reason I chose this painting is because I literally do this all the time. I can never sit on a couch like a normal person.
From first glance, I would've guessed this painting to be from the roaring 20's time era. Her outfit and sassy stance suggests a new found type of women in modern age.
I chose this painting specifically because the girl is happy and smiling, she's genuinely happy, and I love that.
