Description

A female figure, stylized in a manner reminiscent of Japanese woodblock prints, tilts her head to the side while her red cape swirls spectacularly in the wind.

The caption reads in the original French: Danaé—Cape du soir de Paul Poiret.

This volume of collected issues is dated 1914 on the title page, but the colophon of the last issue says “Printed on June 15, 1915.”
