a look at the paintings from the Mad Men TV series

Joan’s Office Art

Joan Harris played by Christina Hendricks is an office manager at Sterling Cooper who acts as a professional and social mentor, as well as a rival, to Peggy Olson. Joan relishes playing the role of femme fatale, and was engaged in an affair with Roger Sterling before his heart attack. An intelligent and capable woman, Joan loves the glamorous, sexy life she leads, saying of Manhattan, “This city is everything.” Unlike Peggy, she does not strive to join the all-male cadre of Sterling Cooper’s non-secretarial workforce, preferring to use her sex appeal to exercise control over the men around her.
