279: Cycles "Le Globe." Ca. 1895
Artist: EMILE CLOUET Size: 34 7/8 x 48 3/4 in./88.6 x 123.7 cm Imp. Jules Simon, Paris Moreso than any other invention, the bicycle greatly contributed to women’s emancipation. With it, the potential for unchaperoned freedom was almost endless -- a concept that is all but incomprehensible to most contemporary women. Here, an otherwise-delicate lady is shown as confident, capable, and free aboard her Globe cycle.
