Discussion:

 

"The German Ida Teichmann [was] a very fine artist who specialized in brilliant, realistic pencil studies of young women," often "a supremely sensuous depiction of erotic lassitude."  Bram Dijkstra, Idols of Perversity: Fantasies of Feminine Evil in Fin-de-Siècle Culture (New York and Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1986), at pg. 156, ill. V, 32.  See, e.g., Ida Teichmann 3 on the Symbolismus website, hereinbelow.  She published in the art nouveau periodical Jugend in 1918.  Dijkstra at pg. 191.
