By developing an aesthetic view centered on women and the working class, they are invincible in the male-oriented art world. During the period when women were still presenting themselves in the art in negotiations, her representation of women, including her gradual self-portraits, effectively conveyed minor differences. Although her naturalistic style is incompatible in witnessing the emerging era, her implantation of the general human experience, the depth and emotional power formed by her dense lines and contrast between light and dark, also reflect her time.
