Reproduced in Das Illustrierte Blatt, March 1936. An unabashedly Freudian-inspired image, from the fanciful series, "Tonight I Dreamed (A Stroll Over the Waves of Consciousness.)"
 
The caption translates: "Sudden Fright. Suddenly a bizarre being appears before her. Its form is indescribable, and its glowing breath hisses menacingly. In horror, the dreamer screams." (See: The New Yorker Magazine, Feb. 17-24, 1936, p. 20.)
