Since yesterday I analysed surrealism, it seemed only fit that today I do the opposite- realism. This is Edward Hopper’s “Girie Show”, an oil painting. Edward Hopper created this painting in 1941, a time where women only had right to be connected to their sexuality if it was for their husbands and anything but would be considered dirty and wrong. The woman shown here is not only accepting her sexuality but embracing it, flaunting it with pride and confidence. She is also not looking directly at anyone, convincing me that she is doing this for herself, and not for a man.
