The Art Deco Mermaids of Carlo Chiostri

Carlo Chiostri (1863 - 1939) was a prolific, Italian illustrator, quite often illustrating fairy tales.  Among these fairy pictures are his mermaids with their pretty, little faces & bright, red lips.  Something like a precursor to Disney's mermaids in Peter Pan & The Little Mermaid.
