Friseur Modell – 1954

Just finished this acrylic painting of a salon model circa 1954.

The models in these vintage German hair magazines have an air of stoicism. The idea of these local ‘mädchen’ living through their fifteen minutes of fame is inspiring.

This model was from Dresden ; the bombing nine years earlier and the oppressive DDR history add a possible background layer of pain and hardship which makes her seem heroic and unflappable.
