Are you sure you have the right artist? I have a lithograph "All is Vanity" by Charles Allan Gilbert (1873-1929) Many magazines and early admirers displayed this illusion-drawing as a curiosity or conversation piece. I think this may be what you are looking for it a Woman sitting at her vanity / optical illusion a skull.

Good Luck. There are several sites on the web with this version for sale.

: If anyone knows where I can get this lithograph, please advise. We had it when I was a child and I was afraid of it. I think my mom threw it out...I have searched and searched her house and attic to try to find it. I can appreciate it now, but I was too young at that time. ANYONE, PLEASE HELP! I have tried art stores and noone has even heard of him or know what I am talking about. I am so happy to have found this web site! Thank you in advance for any help you can give me.
