Heward’s paintings of strong, independent models offer a new interpretation of Canadian women in the 1920s. Rollande’s thoughtful expression and no-nonsense posture, with hands on her hips and one leg thrust forward, shows that she is in complete control of her environment. Her placement outside of the fence is deliberate, serving to emphasize her independence and strength.
