Fin de Siècle

Fin de Siècle

George du Maurier

From English Society

That’s where poor Mrs. Wilkins used to live!”
Why ‘poor’ Mrs. Wilkins?”
Well, her husband was killed in that horrid railway accident, don’t you remember?”
Oh, but that was months ago!”

Another du Maurier cartoon that can serve as a fashion plate.
