I think that expression is open to many interprations, so I preffer let others complete the title... I love old portraits! I read once that at the end of the previous century, in japan, there was a kind of photographer specialized in taking photos of women looking to marry. These picture was sent to her future husband and they were married without meeting in person

I love old portraits too, actually, only that you made it in your unique style. Is not the usual old portrait anymore.
I didn´t knew about the last part, but, well... Japan was always full of surprises!
Is a wonderful piece, though, especially for the expression filled with arrogance. This woman has something from those old and unmarried pedagogic maniacs that once were "killing" the poor rich girls, with their ethical manners and linguistic theorems and piano pseudo-masterpieces. Is something very bad, very mean and very ugly in those eyes. Is the classic model of a never-lady, for me. (oh, the Never-Lady is my term. Ironically, yes, but is also true)

I do not know her, I was just talking on how you have depicted your character in this particular work, Felipe. You know, in each new work, each model plays some role, more or less, depending on what any photographer can ask. Here, the way she stands, just reminded me of what I just said in the previous comment. This doesn´t mean she´s the same in her real life, please, don´t get me wrong.
