Description

Movie starlet-like lass in a wide hat relaxes with the subtlest image of a cigarette at her lips. As usual, exquisitely designed and rendered with perfect body language. This poster did not just represent smoking, it represented the independence of women in Germany during the Weimar Republic and how they were able to smoke in public, something which had been socially forbidden in the past. The young lady exudes this kind of in-your-face confidence. (Weimar /Tobacco /Fashion /Sigrid /Suffrage) Superb. Beautifully framed and matted.
