This delightful etching was etched c.1920. Rose pulled roughly fifty prints from the plate but it was never published because of its erotic content. When Matisse illustrated the same subject (Mallarmé's poem L'Apres-midi d'un faune), he too resorted to neoclassical convention 'to remind us of the pagan simplicity and vitality of the designs on Greek vases and the erotic murals at Pompeii and Herculaneum'. Norman had visited Pompeii en route to London in 1909.
