Portrait of the Journalist Sylvia von Harden (1926). Otto Dix (German, 1891-1969). Oil and tempera on wood. Centre Pompidou - Musée National d'Art Moderne.<p>The journalist Sylvia von Harden is shown here sitting alone, in the role of the emancipated woman intellectual she sought to be in 1920s Berlin, her nonchalance somewhat unnatural, the disdainful self-possession of the face contradicted by the writhing hand.

Evensong (1895). Charles Frederick Lowcock (British, fl.1878-1922). Oil on panel.<p>While Evensong is used most commonly for evening prayer in the Anglican Church, a form of worship said and sung in the evening, Lowcock depicts women in ancient dress singing while playing the lyre.
Anne Emily Sophia Grant (known as ‘Daisy’ Grant), Mrs William Markham (1857). Francis Grant (Scottish, 1803-1878). Oil on canvas. Scottish National Gallery.<p>Grant’s affectionate depiction of his daughter was painted just before Daisy’s marriage to Colonel William Markham. In depicting his daughter, Grant was unconstrained by the demands of a commission. For a mid-century portrait by a painter at the heart of the artistic and social establishment, it is startlingly direct.
