Optical Illusion

This RPPC has been crudely hand-painted--the glossy color standing out now against the badly faded sepia. Whether a woman with gigantic feet and an unheimlich look about her, or a man in drag with a passing resemblance to Oscar Wilde--your call. 

Hardly in doubt, though: that Bridget Riley did the moiré pattern on the skirt.
