About this work


1907 magazine insert advertising the California Fig Syrup Co.'s 'Syrup of figs' laxative which seems to have been largely for children. The packaging is shown on the back page. The front shows a young woman with long, auburn hair dressed in crimson and white classical robes reaching up and picking figs from a tree with water, trees and mountains in the background. An art nouveau design of water lilies on a purple background surrounds her.
