Mothers, Bring In Your Daughters! by Jossot

Mères, rentrez vos filles ! — Les Faunes sont dehors ! (“Mothers, bring in your daughters! The wolves are out there!”—“faunes” being 1890s French slang for men with predatory habits, roughly equivalent to the English “wolves”). Illustration by Jossot, from Jugend, 1896. The illustration has been restored to its intended solid colors.
