The front cover from Jugend Magazine from Issue Two, January 1900. It features a blindfolded woman barefoot, resting one foot on a wheel, holding a cornucopia from which roses are falling. She reaches out and moves the minute hand of a clock forward past XII. There are wings at her hand. The clock-face bears the signs of the zodiac and rays of light shoot out all around, from which we are to understand that the woman represents Time and the passage in January from one year to the next.

The image is by Gräfin Otolia (Olga) Kraszewska, the only woman artist to be featured in Jugend magazine.
