Embodying the image of the "third sex" or woman trapped in a man's body in her androgynous female portraits, Romaine Brooks was an American citizen who spent most of her life in Paris fleeing from the physical abuse of her mother and insanity of her brother. Her early life was detailed in her unpublished autobiography No Pleasant Memories.

Many of the subjects of Brooks portraits including her own self portrait (Smithsonian American Art Museum) were shown in tuxedoes with pinched (showing 500 of 4724 characters).
