This portrait is portraying a husband and a wife with a very elegant setting. It seems that they are representing the upper class because of the clothing depicted and the exquisite taste they have for jewelry and accessories. The art in this photogragh is mainly realistic because it is a natural scene and there is nothing out of the ordinary. They are not trying to sell the product based on style but on the situation. The man has a certain impression of the woman and whether she uses Palmolive soap will have everything to do with if he stays interested in her or not. In this article there is a lot of medical information given such as what makeup does to your skin and to your pores, which is the sole reason for the need to use this particular soap. This ad make the appeal that it is very important to keep yourself and your husband satisfied and to do this it is essential to take care of your body and use the right product to do so. It creates a lot of anxiety because it gives a scenario where your husband may not want to make the same decision twice to marry you based on whether or not you maintain a good appearance. The art shows this situation because there is no connection between the two. The husband is clearly looking right passed his wife and that could be due to the fact that she isn't keeping up with the standard that her husband set which is to cleanse yourself with Palmolive. The ad is logical because it has truth to it. It states the medical facts of what can happen to your skin if you don't take care of it and it explains that by using a product such as palmolive it will only enhance to the look and the cleanliness of your body. Palmolive is known to soothe and soften as is cleans the pores and it also contains palm and olive oils which were used as cosmetics in the days of ancient Egypt. For the most part, this ad uses pictures that don't try to force the product on you but more so to show you what Palmolive is capable of doing.
