This comely young lady has to be a descendant of the Africans who were brought by the French to Haiti in the 18th century to work as slave labor on their coffee plantations.

Gino Boccasile was an Italian illustrator. Born in Bari, Boccasile was the son of a perfumer. Early in his youth he lost his left eye, when a drop of quicklime fell into it while he drank from a fountain. Nonetheless, he showed a precocious aptitude for design and completed studies at the fine art school of his home town.
