Lobo's fangirling hard

Soo I think this two pictures very well represent a different attitude of woman and men’s art at the same subject.

The first one is Alfons Mucha. All woman at his illustrations are the same - highly erotic, almost unconscoious from the ecstasy. See the way she is  keeping her head high and her half open mouth? Her half closed eyes? And her curve hairs? It’s sexual. The way she is looking at you is seduce.

Jane Atche (this same year - 1896, this same magazine) is different. Woman here is self confident, smoking isn’t giving her erotic pleasure but some kind of satisfaction. There is only she and her time when she can do whatever she wants. She isn’t object on this illustration, she is subject.
