Blog #4 After the Bath

After the Bath by Suzanne Valadon in 1908, Pastel

    I chose this painting because it looks mysterious, she is looking back like someone is watching her dry off and the suspicion builds up. This depicts post impressionism and I don't know why she wanted to be on the sofa and that made it interesting to view. She could've stood behind the wall to get dressed and the colors are very normal to glorify a marvelous image. Somebody can be standing in the background and the fact that the towel is right next to her makes it seem she wants the audience to be looking at her nude body looking back at us. Overall it symbolized that she wanted it to look like she was a happy single woman, but she is soon married to a young lover.
