"Paul Berthon, known for his art nouveau style in advertisements and posters, sets up the viewer to focus on the model’s body with her pale skin contrasted against the muted colors of the background. Once the viewer gets closer, though, the seemingly straightforward print begins to shift with a nod to ‘Through the Looking Glass’, where things aren’t what they seem. The model has been posed in a way that puts her body on display against a variety of textures on the wall and floor behind her. Despite her static pose, she appears to be pulled towards the bottom left of the image - towards the rabbit. Her gaze is fixed on the white rabbit, but the rabbit (whose feet mirror the woman’s) is looking back at the viewer, smiling mischievously."
