The New Woman

Wiener Werkstatte terra cotta head by Gudrun Baudisch at Artnet

We love the dramatic 20's and 30's portraiture of women- marcel waves or blunt cut, heavy eyes or natural, a woman's appearance was an expression of freedom and self. Art, whether stylized busts or more traditional portraiture mirroring the looks of the times, gives us a glimpse of radical departures in taste and social norms.
