An original gouache cover painting for the notorious French publication La Vie Parisienne. The long running, humorous and racy magazine chronicled the exploits and sexual proclivities of sassy and free spirited French follies showgirls and their often dim witted suitors in risque, breezy, spicy pulp-like fashion. Maurice Milliere was a frequent contributor of cover illustrations. Fans on both sides of the Atlantic were familiar with the adventures of our delightful bobbed hair cover girl “Fanny” who appeared in a variety of humorous and or scandalous poses. Text translates to Our Huntresses: How the ladies make their powder speak.
