Russia : Stage-setting
ロシアの民族衣装がこの年のスタートのイラスト。雑誌の内容と表紙は一致していない。舞台装置?というこのタイトルの意味はわからないが、ロシアの明るいイメージが感じられる女性の姿だ。背景のロシアの暗い街との対比が面白い。

Frank McIntosh can count himself lucky that he is a painter:he can pay in a lively manner whatever debt he owes the Russian genius. He is not compelled to search his soul gloomily, as one must if working in the literary arts under the Russian influence. Instead he can take counsel of the Russian decorative painters,place his colors in unusual juxtaposition and turn out a piece of work that is positively gay.Surely his cover this month is so --gay enough,indeed,in mood and color to be the winning desing for a Russian number in a revue.
