All Is Vanity by Charles Allan Gilbert

This piece is very striking and makes subtle statements on society's focus on superficial appearances. Naturally, the viewer's eyes will be draw to the women in the mirror, but then explore the image until skull jumps out of picture. I enjoy that this seemingly innocent piece suddenly has a darker undertone that surprises the audience. In addition, I liked the piece's message that once a person begins to only be the person in the mirror, life is just full of empty vanity.
