The Red Shawl
Another old French magazine print of an elegant young lady posing in her boudoir wearing a very ornate fringed red and white shawl over her long sleeveless dress.
Originally painted by the artist H. Richir, this image was published in 1914 with the title "Le châle rouge".
The lady, looking confidently pleased with herself, has a great hairstyle that is so redolent of the times. Plenty of detail in the carpet and background wallpaper but she stands out quite beautifully in the picture.
