A fantastic and phrenetic original art deco era illustration of a nude nymph sea sprite and friends riding a school of flying fish! Original use is unknown; looks like a pulp cover or perhaps an early Science & Invention cover to these eyes.

A defining and whimsical example by the American Artist Charles W. Pancoast, who is credited with illustrating the 1907 edition of BLACK BEAUTY: The Autobiography of a Horse by Dodge Publishing Company, New York.
