*Decadent novel by Jan Toorop's mistress: “‘Elle est comme la Buveuse d'Absinthe de Félicien Rops...’ zeide de Russische beeldhouwer Z. droomerig. Ja, zij was als la Buveuse d'Absinthe... Nimmer vergat ik de duistere vuren harer oogen...”
The last (?) book cover made by Toorop. Not mentioned in Van Wezel “Toorop: Zang der tijden.” Also not discussed among the many forgotten Dutch Decadent novels on rond1900.nl. No copy in the Rond1900 private collection auctions, on Catawiki in 2019. Very rare.
