This illustration shows a modern emancipated young woman of the 1920s and 1930s. She wears short skirts, drives her own sporty open-topped car, and is even capable of fixing it herself when it breaks down. Tito presents her as independent and rather 'racy'. He has created an amusing but also rather provocative image. It may have been intended for publication in a magazine.
