Datable to around 1922-1925, this drawing seems to have been used as an illustration for the Italian monthly review Novella, Rivista letteraria. The content of the magazine - launched in 1919 by the publisher Italia but later taken over by the Mondadori publishing house - was made up largely of short stories by Italian writers.
