She is serious about bullfight. That means she had admiration for the sport (although I argue that it should be called a sport). But, she does not allow her "admiration" or "respect" to die down her whimsical when she paints bullfight. As..as comparison the two ideas that are equal in some way. If she is serious about the bullfight, then she does not let her respect to "suppress".

Hi,
Could someone give me a break down of this question again? Still a little lost after reading Brahma's explanation.

The question for ETS is easy but for me is all but easy.

Basically, instead to try to translate every word of the sentence it would be much better to grasp the sense of it overall.

Now: even though she has a lot of respect for the bullfight (I suppose we are in Spain where it is almost a religion) THIS RESPECT for what the bullfight represents to her or in the society where she lives ....this respect does not stop her to painting it in a fancy way which, turns out, could be intended as disrespectful for the bullfight itself.

Therefore, the respect on one hand and the will to depict the fight in an extravagant way, from the first scenario to the second she is not suppressed.

I.E she is free to paint whatever she wants

Hope this helps
