Notes:

The German word tänzerin means dancer, but primarily a female one. In this case the title is probably a reference to the film Die Serpentintänzerin which was produced in 1895; the film lasted for only six seconds and showed a barefoot dancer whirling about with a shawl or scarf lifting up over her head as she turned.

The picture is credited to E. Mesples; this appears to be Eugène Paul Mesplès (1849 – 1924).

The bright colours in this picture appear to be an attempt to capture the movement of the film, which was in black and white.
