Ca. 1908. Oil on canvas. On display elsewhere

In the last years of the nineteenth century and the first of the twentieth, women were frequently depicted with certain attributes like the peacock in this painting, a symbol of vanity, that incarnated the defects regarded as specific to their gender. Pride is an extraordinary example of the pictorial expression of the so-called "female character", a reduction of woman’s essence to an archetype that was paradoxically brought about through a discourse of gallantry.
