Italian, Early 20th Century.

Intertwining history and legend, the story of Cleopatra (68-30 B.C.) has inspired artists for centuries. The present depiction dates to a period of Egyptomania inspired by Howard Carter's discovery of the tomb of Tutankhamun in 1922. Egyptian motifs in turn informed dress and high fashion during the Roaring Twenties and in the decorative arts, became an integral part of the language of Art Deco.
