Lady beating heat spell, reading Le Sourire with cool drink. Le Sourire, July 1929. Artist: Suzanne Meunier (French, 1888-1974). 
Meunier is one of only two female artists creating etchings in the Boudoir style. It’s unsurprisingly a male dominated genre as there was a 19th century attitude when the men were free to study the female form whilst the ladies were left studying flowers. Meunier’s work tends toward the graphic Vargas pin-up style.

Le Sourire, 1931 and the perfect way to relax.

How right that the body changed over time, becoming a gallery of scars, a canvas of experience, a testament to life and one’s capacity to endure it.
