Jeff Wall, Picture for Women (1979).
Wall’s inspiration for this photograph was Manet’s painting A Bar at the Folies-Bergeres (1881-82). Like Manet’s painting, a reflection from a mirror is represented in the image. The photograph and the painting both involve a complex game of glances between the figures in the image, a woman and a man, both reflected in the mirror, and the viewer. Wall further complicates the game by adding another gaze, that of the camera itself, its eye centrally fixed in the composition.
