This is one of the two finished illustrations for the fairy tale: "Bluebeard" by Charles Perrault.

( original title: "La Barbe Bleue" but I am Dutch, so for me it is called:"Blauwbaard" )

Explination of the Dutch text:


"She was so overcome with curiosity that, without reflecting upon the discourtesy of leaving her guests, she ran down the staircase, so precipitately that twice or thrice she nearly broke her neck."
