At a time when the "modern girl" and other social changes threatened the established notions of feminine appearance and women's social roles, Goyö fashioned icons representative of traditional femininity. The women in his best prints have both power and presence, even a sense of self-possession, as if aware that they are fated to stand forever poised at the intersection of tradition and modernity. 2002
