ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the popularity of aprons. One possible explanation as to why the apron may draw the interest of so many contemporary artists is that the imagery evokes equally strong negative and positive associations. Aprons can be interpreted as symbols of hearth and home and elicit memories of strong, hard working women who nurtured and held families together. They can also be viewed as symbols of the confining attitudes towards women and domestic work that have been a part of this culture's history.
