The drawing is inspired by Felicien Rops and Aubrey Beardsley. The title of the drawing may well have com from a refrain by Mephistopheles in Charles Gounod's Opera Faust.
In the years around 1900 parts of the Opera were often performed at the Scheveningen Kurhaus where de Nerée probably heard the aria.
