I am not sure that I have ever read a fable of the swan and the crane. Once I learned that "grue" means not only a crane but a prostitute, I am not sure that the artist had ever read one either! In any case, a crane in a very small pool eyes a jauntily and thinly clad young woman. I never thought I would have one of "those" French postcards in this collection!
