Given the violence of the image, the title, THE FAIR MAID, has a certain irony. The 1920’s liberated woman was a favorite Verschuuren subject. Here he carries his fantasy to extreme for a circus side-show apache dancer act. The female dominatrix stomps her partner whom she has thrown to the ground. The poster has a short area of border restoration at the bottom right, not affecting the image area. Printed by DRUKKERIS KOTTING, Amsterdam. Rare.
