Scheherazade by Alberto Vargas, 1921.  

During my time in high school I picked up a coffee table book of illustrations by Alberto Vargas only to relocate said book this afternoon.  Out of the dozens of famed pieces spanning multiple decades, this illustration from 1921 seemed most noteworthy, causing me to snap a quick photograph for all of you who may take interest.
