CW Joannon 1910

1910  Salon des Artistes Français (1910): La Chatte metamorphosé en Femme, par E. Joannon.  ND.  1556 Dt.  S.B.A. Black-and-white cameo reproduction.  $8 from Bertrand Cocq, Calonne Ricouart, France, Sept., '18. 

This is a lively rendition of CW that seems to enjoy keeping the nude woman humanly female rather than already a cat.  The man reacts with suitable surprise.  If turbulence is a sign of good art, this is good art!  The card is a bit unusual in having two different positions from which to read its landscape image and its portrait information.
