Le Belle Epingle
This is a definite "fine art" card. The original image is by Felix Valloton, who lived around the turn of the century BEFORE this. 1865- 1925. He was a Swiss engraver and he rose to prominence with number of works like these. He said that they were showing the bedroom battles going around about everyday.
I have taken the liberty of putting in the background, flowered wall paper.
I have been puzzling over this quite a while. The man seems to have a horn and a strange beard like a devil. The woman has no regard for him, (notice the really great curly lip on her !!!) but knows she cannot win the battle. His leg shows the intent, just get it over with.
This has to be a married couple::: she is in her wrapper, a husband would be the only person allowed to see her so. Were they ever in love ?? Was he her choice ?? Is this all about having an heir ??
On the other hand.... she might have just sent him to the store to buy her "coral" lipstick.
Card is invitation sized, and curretnly blank inside. I have a ton of sayings and sentiments should you choose to ask.
