While discussing similar works and Arikha's long dialogue with the nude female figure, Duncan Thomson notes: "The most intriguing confrontations, however, have been in a number of large oil paintings. In two of these the woman confronts herself in a mirror, which also plays the role of displaying her sexuality... The mirror creates a spatial tension, heightening the ambiguity of a dispassionate involvement with something that remains to be unambiguously capable of arousing passion...." (Duncan Thomson, Arikha, 1994, London, p. 178).
