2), the first one was painted immediately after Ria’s death in 1912. Klimt created a half-length portrait giving an impression that the woman surrounded with flowers was only falling asleep. However, Aranka rejected this painting because of the aura of serenity and peace shrouded her daughter.

A Negra, which means “The Black Woman,” painted in 1923, is an iconic work. It represents Tarsila’s growing recognition of the richness and diversity of her native country. This painting is thought to be based on a photograph of a servant she knew as a child. This painting made me laugh, it is a beautiful painting, but it reminded me of myself when I get home from work. In the painting the right breast hanging long, exaggerates a tired sense of being.
Instead of complying with this age-old constraint, St. Vincent Millay challenges the expectations placed upon women in the last line of “The Singing-Woman from the Wood’s Edge” by stating, “What should I be but just what I am?” (St. Vincent Millay 36). This line shows that, women were beginning to live life how they wanted during the 1920s, possessing more control over their individuality than ever before. Furthermore, as urged by St. Vincent Millay, a woman’s individuality was something to be expressed and impervious to other’s expectations. However, these changes in women’s lives are for both the better and worse.

In 1925 Otto Dix completed a painting of a friend and performing artist titled, The Portrait of the Dancer Anita Berber. At first glance it appears Dix portrays Berber in a harsh and negative light, however upon a closer look at the personal, public and artistic lives of both artists one can glean that Dix represented Berber more fondly and favorably than many of his other portraits of working women. The Portrait of the Dancer Anita Berber confronts the viewer with a fire engine red color scheme that is close to monochromatic. Berber wears a slinky fitted dress that hugs and accentuates her body.
Today in the Dr. Maxine Merlino art gallery I was part of an interview with Artist Norax Ayala. She grew up in the Inland Empire, and recently moved to Long Beach for graduate school. She has always loved art, and she was always coloring when she was younger. She then moved on to watercolor painting, and then real painting when she got older. Her artwork now is inspired by what she cares about most, feminism.
