"This poster for the 5th annual 1897 exhibition of the Artistic Club of Schaerbeek, has the inclusion of the quintessential Livemont female type. Seen in profile, with full lips and aquiline nose, she wears a metallic floral headband, whose blossoms are intertwined with her tresses. She mediates upon a statuette of her likeness which she holds in her hand" (Rennert, PAI-XXXI, 392)
"Livemont was the foremost Belgian practitioner of the Art Nouveau style. His posters invite comparison to Mucha, but it should be remembered that he had already produced several posters by the time Mucha created his first. Above all, Livemont was a skilled lithographer, a quality evident in the subtle colour gradations and detail of this sensual poster" (Rennert XXIX-454)
