This is a cover illustration for the 1913 edition of the Monaco-Sports Magazine. It was designed by artist Umberto Brunelleschi.

Umberto Brunelleschi (1879 - 1949) was an Italian artist. He moved to Paris in 1900 where he soon established himself as a printer, book illustrator, set and costume designer. He worked for Le Rire as a caricaturist (often under the pseudonym's Aroun-al-Raxid or Aron-al-Rascid) and was a contributor to many of the deluxe French fashion publications including Journal des Dames et Des Modes, La Vie Parisienne, Gazette du Bon Ton and Les Feuillets d'Art. He also worked as a book illustrator.
After serving in the Italian Army during the First World War, he returned to Paris. In the 1920s he diversified into set and costume designs for the Folies Bergère, the Casino de Paris, the Théâtre du Châtelet and theaters in New York, Germany, and in his native country. In Italy, he worked for Opera Houses such as La Scala in Milan, and the Maggio Musicale Fiorentino in Florence.
