It is not difficult to find a relationship between the motifs we see on this fan and works by established artists in which courtship and the use of the fan by the woman is a common theme. The language of the fan would act as a living language that was expressed at courtly gatherings associated with the outdoors, with natural surroundings, in which we already see the modern woman strolling through a new city. At that time, the city of Valencia was being improved, with the result of promoting leisurely walks and a relaxed atmosphere in which the woman would initiate a game of seduction, with the fan being a crucial element. This would be the source of the revolution that would shortly emerge and give rise to a new woman, key to her idea as an icon of modernity.
