Louisiana lithographer Caroline Durieux's subjects were largely genteel white Southerners, depicted with overtones of gentle mockery and satire. Her faces were caricature-like, with features that convey smug, snobbish attitudes that she associated with the social elite. This lithograph is rendered in the spare, linear style that was one of her standard approaches. The figure is a portrayal of disdain, mocking those who personified a reactionary desire to maintain distinctions in social class at all costs.
