Description

Artist: DECAM Size: 31 5/8 x 63 1/2 in./80.3 x 161 cm Imp. P. Lemélin, Asniéres Utilizing the allegorical imagery frequently associated with the French proverb "La Verité sort du puits" (The Truth comes out of a well), in which a nude female representing Truth is seen leaping forth from a well, here we are presented with an advertisement for a bicycle chain. Rather than the usual rope-pulley system, a bike-chain like mechanism is depicted behind her as she makes a superstitious hand gesture against bad luck. Apparently, if you use this brand of bicycle chain, you will be protected from all harm -- no lie.
