An exciting Art Deco / Great Depression-era pen and ink illustration by the social satirist Anne Harriet Fish, this was published in an issue of the British humor magazine "The Tatler." Fish, who periodically worked under her married name Anne Sefton Fish, is best known for her character "Eve," a coquettish flapper girl, whose exploits skewered the social mores of modernity.
This particular illustration shows a woman in her bedroom combing through the curls of her wig. A washer girl on a ladder spots her through the window and they both look caught by surprise as the facade of the woman's glamorous style and beauty is lifted and the truth is revealed.
The illustration is matted and framed behind glass.
