Moderne Mermaid Night Light
Bold colors and geometric patterns mark this "belle sirene" an image in the Art Moderne style.
Generally seen as a late adaptation of Art Deco in architectural style, it was occasionally applied to common artistic motifs like this flirtatious femme fatale from the late 1920s.
Sirens were the aquatic cousins of mermaids and more specifically linked in historical Greek and Teutonic mythology with luring sailors to their death.
Picasso, as a noted Modernist, had no such problems with the many fabled sirens of the age and his career in no way suffered for it.
