They agreed to pose as her muse while adorning in loose but elegant with deep colour dresses. It was painted in 1925 and in this era women were allowed to wear loose dresses and one can translate this to how Tamara really believed in women’s freedom to dress however they wanted to. This loose clothing is also a way of showing how women should take control of their sexuality even if they decide to be ‘loose’. Unlike popular belief that women love jewelry, this is not seen in her painting as she wants to showcase women as more than just what people predict. The two sisters in the painting have a bob hairstyle which was in those times considered a male hairstyle but Tamara has painted them with this hairstyle to show that women can do whatever they want with their hair regardless of society’s expectations. These two women have a peaceful look in their eyes while one of them rolls her eyes. They look rather independent and hold such a confident but gentle pose.
Being a modern woman one can’t fail to see the backdrop of the painting which is modernist. She is one of the artists who are known to have embraced the art deco as her form of style in her painting. The two women are glamorous and independent and they also seem to have such a sexual gaze towards each other and it was definitely not a mistake as Tamara wanted to portray that women are capable of having control over their bodies and minds. She has also combined cubism and Italian renaissance in which the painting has used deep but bright colors as she was often quoted to have believed in using those same colors which not so often used. Her intention was never to do what others were doing but rather to set her own trend that’s why many would describe her as a trendsetter.
From the oil painting, one can also be quick to point out that she was inspired by the glamor that was seen in the golden age of Hollywood this is because of the fabrics that were used to make the dresses. Just as her life that many would describe frivolously this particular painting can be seen to have showcased it. This portrait also shows her belief system or rather her environment's conviction which was fascism which has some dark glamour. She was inspired by Andre' to embrace the softer version of cubism and to combine it with neoclassic style.
