If Mucha was the star of all the Champenois artists (it was his work that graced the cover of the Champenois catalogue), the company also had many lesser known artists working on decorative panel projects. Camps and Rossi were among them and some of their works were also printed on silk. Just as with Mucha's silk projects, these images (for both technical and marketing reasons) were printed in very small runs. When Mucha stopped working at Champenois, the printer asked artists like Camps to continue creating decorative panels featuring beautiful women. This is the version printed on paper; there is another variant, with hanging rods, printed on silk by F. Champenois.
