The Art
Two Girls of The Period This cartoon shows a fashionable protestant convert to Catholicism looking in horror at the Catholic nun This is a reference to the Mary Saurin case where a nun had taken action against her convent for having forced her to carry out such menial and manual tasks as scrubbing floors However the Protestant faith relied much on a relationship with God based on their works yet in this cartoon the convert is shown as interested in little but her clothes and hair So this picture not only presents a negative view of Catholicism but a negative view of the shallowness of women of fashion From Punch or the London Charivari February

This giclée print delivers a vivid image with maximum color accuracy and exceptional resolution. The standard for museums and galleries around the world, giclée is a printing process where millions of ink droplets are “sprayed” onto high-quality paper. With the great degree of detail and smooth transitions of color gradients, giclée prints appear much more realistic than other reproduction prints. The high-quality paper (235 gsm) is acid free with a smooth surface.
