Champs-Elysees: Palais de Glace
Adverting for an ice skating rink. Known as the father of the modern poster, Jules Chéret (1836 – 1932) was a French painter and lithographer. He worked on everything from theater to advertising. In one of the finest images in Cheret's Palais de Glace (Ice Palace, Champs Elysees) series, the skater is in a red and yellow striped dress, all wrapped in furs, and her gentleman friend hovers discreetly in the background.
