Helen Turner probably painted "Sunny Room—The Long Shadow" in her New York studio at the height of her career there. She frequently portrayed women absorbed in mundane tasks or posing in intimate domestic spaces; here the model, her back to the viewer, looks in a mirror and arranges her hat. The figure’s small scale, the dominant presence of the light-filled windows flanking the mirror, and the shadow that gives the work its title focus the viewer’s attention on the painting’s actual subject—the palpable, shimmering atmosphere of the room.
