20 Artist Proof - Woman, 6 x 8 inches, Paper Plate Lithography, $60
So this hair style is from the 1830's and I've always found it amusing. The title has been simplied to Woman but there is part of me that wants to call it 'Poodle' because that is what it reminds me of! One of the challenges with the Geneaology of Hair project was that the farther I went back in time the fewer images of women's hair styles I could find... yesterdays what taken from an illustration drawing of a Gibson Girl. This image came from a painting (portrait) of a woman. It was quite a nice portrait, but what a crazy hairstyle! And colleagues tell me my hair style is out there!
