Disappointed?



The Blue Gown, 1917 by Frederick Carl Frieseke, The Detroit Institute of Arts.

An American Impressionist painter who studied with the Europeans. Frieseke's work is full of color and light.

What are your thoughts? I think she is all ready for a date that did not show.

I agree, Martha, she looks very disappointed...

Either that or she's a bored model who's now rethinking the decision to pose in such an uncomfortable dress!

Disappointed, or very cross about something. "Mother made me wear my blue gown...I hate this old blue gown..all the other girls will have...". Maybe I'm too freshly finished reading Little Women.

She looks bored and cross. "Date didn't show" seems like a good guess to me. Either that, or she'd rather be out riding in trousers but someone made her stay in and do "ladylike" things in a dress.

My heart cries out for her. She seems so disappointed. So excited that the boy she has been crazy about finally asked her out, only to become a no show.

Thanks for all your comments!

The sofa looks uncomfortable and the girl looks unhappy.
